Many us are familiar with the trauma of loosing a tooth or teeth, which can be a very upsetting experience, especially if it is one of our front teeth. This can have a major impact on how we feel about ourselves, as well as the way we look and lost teeth can result in the mouth and cheeks developing a rather sunken look.
The traditional ways of replacing missing teeth, using removable dentures and bridgework, are not always a satisfactory solution to the problem, leading to difficulties with eating certain foods and speaking. Thankfully modern dental techniques are now available that can provide a more effective way of treating this problem.
Here at Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire, dental implants are a modern solution that offers a clinically proven and safe solution to restoring your smile, as well allowing you to bite and chew with confidence.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants consist of a precision made titanium screw, which is inserted into the socket where a tooth has been removed or lost. Titanium is used because it is bio compatible, which means the bone and blood vessels grow around the implant, securing it into your facial structure. Once the gum and bone has healed around this, an artificial tooth is then fixed into place.
Dental implants are a very durable and stable tooth replacement option, which can be used to replace just one or several teeth, as well as offering a means of support to additional bridgework if necessary. There are several benefits to having dental implants including improved support to the muscles of the lips and face and prevention of bone loss from the jaw.
How do I find out if dental implants are right for me?
We offer this treatment for adult patients after a full consultation to assess the suitability of dental implants for you. You need to be in good general health and have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density for the dental implants to be fitted.
