Dental implants provide a genuine life-changing solution to many dental problems and is one of the most exciting areas of modern dentistry to work in. At Summertown Dental we provide all the expertise required to deliver a variety of Dental Implant treatments, ranging from placing a single tooth implant to full mouth rehabilitation to same day teeth and in, cases of inadequate bone, we’re also able to place bone grafts.
If you’ve a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants offer a cutting-edge alternative to conventional bridges or dentures.
A titanium post is placed in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or to stabilise dentures.
The implant is usually left for some weeks to allow the bone to form a strong bond to the implant. Then, once the implant has integrated with the bone, an artificial tooth is attached for a natural look. The artificial tooth is custom made to ensure the ideal colour, shape and size.
Dental Implants offer some really exciting benefits to patients and often provide a life-changing experience. These benefits include :
- Restoring the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state
- Increasing comfort by eliminating loose fitting dentures
- Avoid filing down healthy neighbouring teeth (as with a conventional bridge)
- Preserve facial structure by virtually stopping deterioration of the jaw
And, they provide a more natural smile improving appearance and self confidence.
