Dental implants in Buckinghamshire: your second chance to smile

At Buckinghamshire clinic Smile Design Dental, we have used dental implants to give those patients with missing teeth a second chance to smile.

dental-implants-buckinghamshireDental implants are replacement tooth roots that are made out of titanium, and are placed directly in your jaw bone in a small operation, which is carried out here at our Buckinghamshire clinic. In most cases, only a local anaesthetic is required, and any post-operative discomfort is usually minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

Once your dental implants have integrated with your jaw bone – a process that typically takes a couple of months – your dentist will attach permanent replacement teeth to the abutments on top of your implants. This will be a crown in the case of a single missing tooth, and a bridge for multiple or all missing teeth.

People loose teeth for all manner of reasons, and a dentist will always tell you that is best to replace them. As well as making you embarrassed to smile or laugh in public, missing teeth can also impact on your diet as you may find you can only eat soft foods, making it difficult to get adequate nutrition and impacting on your overall health. Remaining teeth may also become crooked or twisted as they shift into any gaps.

We have helped scores of patients to restore their confidence in their smile and their ability to eat whatever you like at our Buckinghamshire practice. Dental implants give your dentist a permanent way to replace your missing teeth, and give you a second chance to smile.

Sometimes, when you present with failing teeth, it is possible to place your dental implants at the same time as removing your unsalvageable teeth. They will integrate with the jaw bone and will provide a very stable anchor on to which your new teeth are then attached.

Dental implants: a superb way to replace your missing teeth

Dental implants are a thoroughly modern tooth replacement solution. Here at Buckinghamshire practice Smile Design Dental, our implant work is carried out by highly-experienced implant dentist Dr Komal Suri. She can use implants to replace one, some, or even all of your natural teeth. So if you have lost teeth or fear your teeth are failing, why not get in touch with Komal to find out how she can help?

dental-implants-buckinghamshireThe benefits of dental implants

The benefits of dental implants are numerous. They are the only permanent way that a dentist can replace lost or failing teeth, and the only tooth replacement option that stands in for natural tooth roots.

Teeth comprise roots and crowns, and standard dentures or bridges only replace the crowns. Without the roots in place, the jaw bone has a tendency to shrink back, which can cause your dentures to become loose and unwieldy, and can also lead to sagging of the facial skin.

Dental implants help prevent these problems because they are in direct contact with the jaw bone, and are made of titanium, which is osteoconductive (meaning it supports bone growth).

Dental implants in Buckinghamshire

When you come to our Buckinghamshire clinic for a dental implant consultation, Dr Komal Suri will conduct a thorough clinical examination to check you are suitable for implant treatment, and will then create a personalised treatment plan.

In most cases, for one missing tooth a single implant and a crown will be used to complete your restoration, whilst for multiple or all missing teeth, a series of dental implants and a bridge or denture is the most common solution.

Usually, a healing period of two to three months is required, during which your implants will integrate with your jaw bone. After healing is complete, your new teeth will be attached.

Using dental implants to replace missing teeth

Missing teeth can make you under-confident about smiling; dental implants can give you that confidence back, and so much more besides. We invite anyone who has lost one or more teeth to join us at our Buckinghamshire dental practice to discover what implants can do for you.

dental-implantsThe implant process

The first step on your journey to dental implants is to come for a consultation with an implant dentist here at Smile Design Dental Practice, Buckinghamshire. They will check that you are suitable for implant treatment and will provide you with a personal treatment plan.

Whilst it is true that the placement of dental implants involves oral surgery, it is only a small operation, and our Buckinghamshire dental practice is fully equipped to carry out such treatment. In most cases, people only require a local anaesthetic.

Although implant placement is just a minor procedure, your dentist will undertake precise planning before placing your dental implants, to avoid nerves and other vital structures and also to enable your new teeth to withstand all the forces generated in the mouth when biting and chewing food.

A healing period of a couple of months is required to give your implants time to integrate with your jaw bone. After this you will have another appointment at our Buckinghamshire clinic to have your permanent new teeth attached to the abutments on top of your implants.

The benefits of dental implants

The dentists at our Buckinghamshire clinic always recommend replacing missing teeth. Dental implants have numerous benefits over standard tooth replacement options. These include:

  • Implants are permanent
  • Implants are the only way to replace tooth roots
  • Implants are osteoconductive, meaning they support bone growth and help to prevent bone loss
  • Your new teeth will look just like natural teeth
  • They will act like natural teeth too, meaning you can eat whatever you wish once more.

Dental implants: a permanent way to restore your smile

If you have lost one or more teeth, dental implants could be the perfect solution. At Buckinghamshire dental practice Smile Design Studio, our implant dentist can use implants to replace the roots of one, some, or even all of your natural teeth. Highly realistic false teeth – either dentures, a bridge, or crowns – are then attached on top, restoring your confidence in your smile and full functionality to your jaw.

dental-implantsHow treatment works

When you come for a consultation about dental implants at our Buckinghamshire clinic, our skilled implant dentist will conduct a thorough clinical examination to assess your suitability for implant treatment. These days, most people are suitable for implant treatment, although if you have already experienced bone loss (perhaps wearing traditional dentures for a number of years) you may need to have an additional procedure called a bone graft or sinus lift in order to build up your bone density.

Placement of dental implants requires a small surgical procedure, which is carried out by your dentist here at our Buckinghamshire clinic. In most cases, this only requires a local anaesthetic.

Your implants will then be left to heal, during which time they will form a strong connection with your jaw bone, creating a very firm anchor on to which your dentist will then attach your new teeth.

Benefits of dental implants

Dental implants and the new teeth attached to them will look and act just like natural teeth. This means that you will be confident to s`mile and laugh in public, with no fear of your new teeth falling out, and can eat whatever you like – even a chewy steak.

With regular visits to the dentist and hygienist here at our Buckinghamshire clinic, your dental implants will last you for many years – perhaps even a lifetime.

How dental implants are revolutionising the lives of denture-wearers

Dental implants are helping scores of denture-wearers to regain their confidence and their ability to eat a healthy and balanced diet, including all their favourite foods. At Smile Design Studio in Buckinghamshire we enjoy nothing more than seeing a patient who has struggled for years with unwieldy and uncomfortable dentures getting their confidence – and their quality of life – back.

dental-implantsThe key thing to remember about dental implants is that they are the only permanent way a dentist can replace your missing teeth. Small titanium screws, implants replace the root portion of a missing tooth or teeth, and are placed directly in your jaw bone in a minor operation carried out by a skilled implant dentist here at our Buckinghamshire clinic.

Titanium is used because of its high degree of compatibility with the human body, and the fact it is osteoconductive, which means it supports bone growth. One of the common side-effects of tooth loss is that the jaw bone starts to resorb or shrink back without the tooth roots in place, and it is this bone shrinkage that can cause dentures that once fitted well to become loose.

If you have worn traditional dentures for some years, you may have found yourself making regular visits to the dentist to have your teeth adjusted, because they have become uncomfortable and prone to slipping out at the wrong moment.

At Smile Design Studio we urge you not to suffer in silence. Come for a consultation with an implant dentist at our Buckinghamshire practice and find out how dental implants can help you.

After placing your dental implants, your dentist will usually leave them to heal for a couple of months. You can still wear your dentures during this time, so you needn’t fear being left toothless. Once healing has taken place, your dentures can be attached to abutments on top of your implants.

Dental implants: an introduction

Dental implants are the only permanent way for a dentist to replace your missing teeth. At Smile Design Studio in Buckinghamshire we can use implants to restore your smile by replacing one, some, or even all of your natural teeth.

dental-implantsWhat are dental implants?

Essentially, dental implants are bionic tooth roots. Small screws made from titanium, they are placed directly in your jaw bone in a minor surgical procedure, carried out under local anaesthetic at our Buckinghamshire dental practice. Most people say that this procedure is more bearable than having a tooth extracted.

Implant positioning is precisely planned to avoid nerves and other vital structures, whilst still providing enough support for your new teeth to withstand the forces generated by biting and chewing. After your dental implants have been placed, your dentist will leave them to heal for a couple of months.

During this time, they mesh with the jaw bone and become a strong anchor on to which your new teeth will be attached – as strong, in fact, as natural tooth roots.

Your dentist will discuss your implant options when you come for an initial consultation at our Buckinghamshire practice. In most cases, for one tooth we will use a single implant with a crown, and for several or all of your teeth we will use a series of implants and either a bridge or dentures.

The good news is, if you need more than one tooth replaced, you often don’t need as many dental implants as teeth. Thanks to the precision planning and positioning carried out by your dentist, one implant can usually support several teeth.

Your new teeth will look just like natural teeth, and will act like them too. This means that not only will you be able to smile with renewed confidence, you will also be able to enjoy a full, healthy and balanced diet.

Dental implants: your questions answered

Dental implants are an increasingly popular way for a dentist to replace missing teeth. At Buckinghamshire dental practice Smile Design, we are aware that having implant treatment is a big decision, which may throw up many questions. We also believe an investment with implants is an investment in your future.

dental implants buckinghamshireHere are some of the common questions patients have about dental implants. If you cannot find an answer to your question here, please get in touch with our Buckinghamshire dental team and we will be happy to help you. . .

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are bionic tooth roots. Small titanium screws, they are placed directly in the jaw bone in a small operation. Once in position they provide a firm anchor for your new teeth – crowns, bridges or dentures – and help to stop the jaw bone shrinking.

Do I need to go to hospital?

We carry out the implant placement procedure here at our Buckinghamshire dental practice. Most patients only need a local anaesthetic, and our principal dentist Dr Komal Suri is well-known in Buckinghamshire and beyond for her caring, compassionate, and gentle approach to dentistry.

Will I have my new teeth straight away?

In most cases it is best to leave dental implants to integrate with your jaw bone for a couple of months before your permanent new teeth are attached. Your clinician may fit temporary teeth in the interim, so you won’t be left toothless.

Do dental implants require a lot of aftercare?

Your practitioner will provide you with bespoke aftercare advice for your implants. As with natural teeth, implants and their associated restorations can be affected by gum disease and plaque. Regular visits to your dentist and hygienist help to prevent this.

How many implants do I need?

This will depend on your clinical needs and will be discussed at your implant consultation.

Dental Implants: the perfect way to replace missing teeth

Dental implants are the only permanent way a dentist can replace missing teeth. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire, our skilled implant team have successfully used implants to replace one, some, or even all the missing teeth of many patients of all ages. If you have lost some of your natural teeth, for whatever reason, read on to discover why an investment in dental implants could be the best decision you ever make. . .

dental-implants-buckinghamshireHow dental implants work

Teeth are made up of two parts – roots and crowns. Standard bridges and dentures only replace the crown portion of a tooth, but dental implants are different. Implants are bionic tooth roots, placed in direct contact with your jaw bone in a small operation, carried out by a skilled and fully-qualified implant dentist here at our Buckinghamshire clinic. After a healing period, permanent new teeth are attached. Depending on your clinical need, these new teeth may be dentures, a bridge, or individual crowns.

The benefits of dental implants

Implants have several benefits over other tooth-replacement options, not least their permanence. They have a high rate of success – up to 98% – and so long as you keep up regular follow-up visits with your dentist and hygienist, your implants could last for the rest of your life.

Because they replace the natural tooth roots, dental implants keep your new teeth firmly in place at all times. You won’t have to struggle with sloppy denture pastes or worry about your bridge coming loose, and there’s no danger of your teeth coming out at an unfortunate moment. If you opt for implant-secured dentures you will still be able to remove them for cleaning – your dentist will teach you how – but otherwise they will stay in position.

If you are interested in treatment with implants, we invite you to join us at our Buckinghamshire practice for a consultation.

How dental implants can replace one, several, or all of your natural teeth

Dental implants are one of the fastest-growing areas in modern dentistry. Since they were invented more than 30 years ago, implants have seen huge advances in terms of techniques and materials used. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire our skilled implant dentists are proud to use only the highest-quality materials. They can replace one, some, or even all of your natural teeth with the help of implants.

How dental implants work

dental implantsTeeth comprise roots and crowns. Traditional options for replacing missing teeth, including bridges and dentures, replace the crown portion of the tooth, but do not replace the root. Without the roots in place the jaw bone slowly begins to shrink back or resorb. This is often the cause of loose dentures, which once fitted well but have become uncomfortable and unwieldy over time.

Dental implants are the only way a dentist can replace the root part of a tooth or teeth. In a small surgical procedure, which is carried out here in our modern and fully-equipped Buckinghamshire dental practice, your implantologist will precisely place the required number of implants to provide a firm anchor for your new teeth. The implants will be placed and angled in such a way that they can fully withstand the forces generated when biting and chewing food.

After your dental implants have been placed, a healing period of about two months is required. During this time, the implants integrate with your bone. At the end of the healing period, your dentist will attach your permanent new teeth.

At our Buckinghamshire clinic, we can place one implant and attach a crown to it to replace one tooth, or can use a bridge to replace several teeth. Dental implants can also be used for denture stabilisation, to prevent your dentures from falling out or becoming loose.

Dental implants: a predictable solution to missing teeth

Dental implants are the only permanent method by which your dentist can replace your missing teeth. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire we have helped to restore both the smile and the functionality of many patients who have lost one or more natural teeth, thanks to dental implants.

Why we lose teeth

dental implantsTeeth are lost for a variety of reasons, from tooth decay and gum disease to accidents and injuries. Whatever the reason for your tooth loss, a dentist will always recommend replacing them. Missing teeth don’t just have a negative impact on your self-confidence; they can also cause problems with speech and diet. Remaining teeth are also highly likely to move into any gaps, becoming crooked and more difficult to clean in the process.

When multiple teeth are lost, the jaw bone is likely to resorb or shrink back. This can make future placement of dental implants difficult, and can lead to a sagging appearance in the facial skin.

How dental implants can help

Dental implants replace the root portion of a missing tooth or teeth. They are placed in your jaw bone during minor surgery, carried out by a skilled implantologist here at our Buckinghamshire clinic. A healing period of a couple of months is required, during which your implants will integrate and form a strong bond with your bone. They then provide a firm anchor on to which your dentist will attach permanent new teeth.

Your dental implants and the new teeth attached to them will look and act just like natural teeth. There is no danger of your false teeth falling out in public, and you can eat whatever you choose – even crunchy and chewy foods.
