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?
The 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).
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.Back to Blog
