Why Choose Dental Implants Manchester For Broken Tooth Repair

If you do happen to experience a badly chipped tooth, broken tooth repair involving dental implants Manchester might not be the first thing you immediately consider. After all dentists are about trying to save teeth right! However, depending upon the severity of the broken tooth, often the act of removing a tooth completely and replacing it with what many in the dental profession call “the most advanced form of tooth replacement that modern dentistry allows” is often the best thing that you can do. Here’s why!

It’s a permanent solution

The fact is that when you visit a private dentist Manchester, or indeed any other dentist in the country, there are many ways that broken teeth can be repaired. These include processes such as

• Dental filling or bonding
• Dental crowns or caps
• Dental veneers

However, despite the fact that they’re all designed to restore a chipped tooth they’re not a permanent fix. The shelf life of a dental crown for example would be somewhere between 6-10 years depending upon where it’s positioned in the mouth and the same goes for white fillings or dental bonding. Porcelain veneers can last longer but they aren’t a good solution for badly chipped teeth. On the contrary dental implants in Manchester offer a permanent solution because they are surgically embedded into the jaw and fuse with the surrounding bone to make a sturdy platform on which can be placed a dental crown. What’s more they have been known to last for as long as forty years. Therefore provided that they’re cared for properly, the implant will never need replacing.

It isn’t compromised

In many cases a slightly chipped tooth is purely a cosmetic issue and shouldn’t cause any long-lasting damage. However when a person experiences a badly chipped or fractured tooth it’s possible to expose the nerve tissue inside of the tooth. Not only might this be extremely painful it can also increase the likelihood of infection which can occur at any time. Even when a broken tooth repairis fixed using root canal treatment the damage has often weakened the tooth and it can become compromised, opening it up to further disease, decay, or infection in years to come. Conversely when a badly fractured tooth is removed and replaced with an implant-based restoration you have a permanent, lifelike prosthetic, so it’s almost as if you have a brand new tooth in it’s place.

Are there any downsides to implant based restorations?

Firstly dental implants require a surgical procedure. Secondly they aren’t a quick fix solution. Although at the end of the process you’ll have a new tooth that will look, feel, and to a certain extent act just like your natural teeth, it can take up to 12 months to achieve these results. Finally implant based restorations don’t come cheap and usually run into hundreds of pounds for a single tooth depending upon where you go. That said, most private dentists in Manchester who fit dental implants offer various payment options, including spreading costs over a number of months. In addition to this, when you take into consideration that fact that you only have to fit implants once, whereas you might have to re-apply dental bonding, crowns, and veneers on numerous occasions, in the long term implants can prove to be extremely cost effective.
