As soon as your teeth go missing, you may find yourself in despair over what comes next. Without your natural teeth, how can you smile with confidence? Will you still be able to talk properly to the people around you – both in a personal and a professional setting? How can you even enjoy your favourite food items? These are just some of the things that may go through your mind as you contemplate life without your natural teeth. The good news is, you will not have to suffer for a long time without teeth, with the help of an implant treatment at the Dental Implant Group London.
Dental implants provide you with the most advanced and reliable missing teeth solutions. An example of this missing teeth solution is a blade implant, which is a type of implant that is placed directly into the jawbone through a surgical procedure. This implant features one or two metal prongs on one side, which are left protruding through the gum tissue; after a healing period, these prongs will provide the connection to where the teeth restorations can be attached.
Blade implants are uses in conditions when conventional or “regular” sized implants are considered to be too wide for the jaw to accommodate. The blade implant features a thin size, which is ideal for patients who have suffered from bone deterioration who may now have a thin jawbone area. The blade implant also has great flexibility, and can be moulded or shaped to perfectly fit the patient’s jaw specifications prior to the actual implant insertion.
