Dental implants are a 21st Century solution for patients with missing teeth. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire, we can use implants to replace one, some, or even all of your natural teeth. Implants don’t just give you back a smile to be proud of, they restore full functionality to your jaw as well.
The placement of dental implants requires a minor oral surgical procedure, which is carried out her at our modern Buckinghamshire dental practice and, in most cases, necessitates only local anaesthetic. We understand that electing to have oral surgery is a big decision, but we also believe that choosing implants to replace your missing teeth is a true investment in your future.
As with any surgical procedure, you are likely to have a number of questions about treatment. Below are some common questions and answers about dental implants; if you can’t find the answer to your question here, get in touch with a member of the team at our Buckinghamshire clinic and we will be happy to help you.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial replacements for the root portions of missing teeth. They are small titanium screws placed in direct contact with your jaw bone, where they form a strong bond that not only firmly anchors your new teeth in place, but also helps to prevent bone loss.
Why should I replace missing teeth?
Any dentist will tell you that missing teeth need to be replaced. Remaining teeth can become crooked and harder to clean by moving into any gaps, and you may find your ability to eat and speak compromised – not to mention your confidence. If several teeth are missing, your jaw bone may start to recede.
Do dental implants hurt?
No. Most people only need local anaesthetic for placement, and any post-operative discomfort is manageable with over-the-counter painkillers.Back to Blog
