Dental implants in Buckinghamshire are a versatile dental treatment. They can be used in a number of different ways.

Dental Implants in BuckinghamshireReplacing one tooth

A single tooth can be replaced using a dental implant. This does not affect the teeth on either side of the gap as dental implants are self-supporting and so do not need to be attached to the surrounding teeth. In fact, having a tooth replaced using a dental implant can help the mouth to be healthier overall.

To replace more than one tooth

Even if you need several teeth replacing, you can still have this done using dental implants that are all fitted at the same time. They do not need to be next to each other but, if they are, you may be able to have more than one tooth mounted on a single implant to reduce the number that you need to have fitted. A single implant can support multiple teeth on a bridge or denture.

Denture retention

If you need all of your teeth replacing or your already have dentures, dental implants can give you dentures that are secure and have the ability to bite at a higher pressure than normal dentures. Dental implants are anchored in the jawbone and integrated into the structure of the mouth. This means they work in harmony with the movement of the jaw once they have healed. Specially adapted dentures can be clipped to dental implants to hold them in place.

Are you suitable?

Many patients are suitable for dental implants. Those that are not may be able to have preparatory work to change this. Even if you have been turned down for dental implants in the past, it is worth exploring this option again as new developments make dental implants accessible to more people all of the time.
