Benefits of Dental Implants

Restore your smile and confidence with our precision-crafted dental implants in Southend-on-Sea!

Durability

Dental implants are renowned for their exceptional durability, often surpassing alternative tooth replacement options in longevity.

One key factor contributing to their durability is the osseointegration process, wherein the implant fuses with the jawbone, creating a stable foundation for the prosthetic tooth. This integration provides remarkable strength and stability, enabling implants to withstand biting forces comparable to natural teeth.
The materials used in dental implants, such as titanium or zirconia, are highly biocompatible and resistant to corrosion, ensuring long-term durability. Titanium implants, in particular, have been extensively studied and proven to exhibit outstanding longevity, with success rates exceeding 95% even after ten years.
Zirconia implants, while relatively newer, also demonstrate promising durability and biocompatibility, offering an alternative for patients with metal allergies or aesthetic preferences.
To illustrate the durability of dental implants, consider a study conducted over a ten-year period, which followed patients with titanium dental implants. The research revealed a remarkably high success rate of over 95%, indicating the implants’ resilience and longevity.
Similarly, clinical observations and long-term follow-ups consistently demonstrate the enduring performance of dental implants, providing patients with confidence in their ability to enjoy a functional and aesthetically pleasing smile for many years to come.

Improved Appearance

Dental implants offer more than just functional benefits; they also significantly enhance one’s appearance.

Unlike traditional dentures, which may appear artificial or cause changes in facial structure over time, dental implants provide a natural and aesthetically pleasing solution.
By mimicking the look and feel of natural teeth, implants blend seamlessly with the rest of the smile, restoring a youthful appearance and boosting self-confidence.
Dental implants help prevent bone loss, which can lead to a sunken facial appearance and premature ageing. By stimulating the jawbone and providing stability, implants maintain the integrity of the facial structure, preserving the contours of the face and preventing sagging of the cheeks and lips.
This results in a more youthful and vibrant appearance, helping individuals feel more confident and attractive in social and professional settings.

Improved Speech

Many patients experience significant improvements in their speech as dental implants provide a stable and secure foundation for artificial teeth.

This stability allows for clearer articulation of sounds, leading to enhanced speech clarity and confidence in communication.
Patients often find that they no longer struggle with slurring or mumbling words, leading to a more natural and effortless speaking experience.
Dental implants also restore proper alignment and function to the mouth, which can positively impact speech production.
By replacing missing teeth and supporting surrounding structures, implants help maintain the natural shape and contours of the mouth, facilitating proper tongue and lip movements necessary for clear speech.
As a result, patients may notice a significant enhancement in their ability to pronounce words correctly and communicate effectively in various social and professional settings.

Improved Comfort

After undergoing dental implant surgery, many patients report a significant improvement in comfort compared to traditional tooth replacement options.

Unlike removable dentures, which can cause irritation and discomfort due to movement, dental implants are firmly anchored in the jawbone, providing stability and a natural feel. This stability allows for more confident speaking, eating, and smiling without worrying about dentures shifting or slipping out of place.
Dental implants closely mimic the natural structure of teeth, both in appearance and function, leading to enhanced comfort.
Since implants integrate with the jawbone, they provide a solid foundation for chewing and biting forces, similar to natural teeth. This stability eliminates the discomfort often associated with ill-fitting dentures or bridges.

Improved Ability to Chew

With dental implants, patients often experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew and eat various foods comfortably.

Unlike traditional dentures, which may slip or move during eating, dental implants are anchored securely into the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for chewing. This enhanced stability allows individuals to bite and chew with greater force and efficiency, enabling them to enjoy a wider range of foods without discomfort or limitations.
Moreover, dental implants allow for a more natural chewing motion. This means that patients can bite and chew more evenly across their dental arch, promoting better digestion and overall oral health.

Improved Oral Health

Dental implants can significantly enhance oral health by restoring functionality and preventing further deterioration.

Patients can brush and floss around implants just like natural teeth, reducing the accumulation of plaque and bacteria that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. This improved oral hygiene not only preserves the integrity of the implants but also contributes to overall oral health and wellbeing.
By filling gaps left by missing teeth, implants help maintain proper spacing and alignment, which can prevent issues such as overcrowding or bone loss over time.
Dental implants promote better oral hygiene practices. Unlike removable dentures, implants are permanently fixed in the mouth, making them easier to clean and maintain.

I had a private emergency appointment booked by mistake in error. The private dentist looked at my missing filling and said it was only half missing. Told receptionist that a was on Universal Credit and the £ 73 charge was wavered by Private dental as it was a mistake by receptionist cancelled NHS six months check up. Appointment was rebooked to see my usual NHS dentist.

My husband and I have been patients at Westcliff Dental Practice for many years and have always had good treatment. However for the past 15 years or so we have been under the care of Daanish Chatteroo who has been excellent. I am a very nervous visiting the dentist but Daanish is always very kind, patient and puts me at ease. Thank you Daanish and all the staff at the practice.

It was my first appointment with Negin, the most pleasant of dentists, from Hungary.,she was so thorough and pleasant. I am so happy to be continuing my treatment with her. I have been with this practice over 25 years and have been disappointed since my long term practitioner left in Covid, but this has restored my trust. Thank you Negin. Brenda
