KordonDent focuses on dental implants because we believe them to be the best possible solution for missing teeth available today. To have a functioning set of teeth can greatly improve your quality of life. Not only will you be able to eat well, but you can also look great.
Having your teeth helps give shape and support to your whole face. When teeth are lost, the gum and jaw bones shrink, which gives rise to a premature ageing effect.
Dental implants are small titanium or white ceramic zirconia screws about the size of the roots of your own teeth. Once placed into the space left by a missing tooth the jaw bone will grow and fuse with the implant, but the most important thing is that the shape of your jaw bone will now be preserved, stopping the ageing effect.
Implants are the closest thing to natural teeth that is available today. Implants are incredibly strong which means that you can bite and chew with an implant just as well as with natural teeth, even with hard foods like whole apples and raw carrots! They are very long-lasting and allow you to live as if you had all of your natural teeth. Implants are also very versatile, and a combination of one or more implants can be used to restore anyone’s smile to brilliance.
If you have missing teeth, or are about to lose teeth, then filling the gap can be achieved with a denture, bridge or implants. To some, dentures are a bit old fashioned, perhaps something that their grandparents might have worn, and they involve the hassle of removal and cleaning. All bridges involve the cutting of adjacent teeth to some extent.
However, the major problem with dentures and bridges is that they fail to preserve the bone and gum around extracted teeth and this will continue to shrink throughout life, giving an ageing effect. Dental implants, on the other hand, feel just like normal teeth, do not involve the cutting of adjacent teeth, are much more of a permanent solution, and prevent the gum shrinkage and aging effect.
