Have you lost one or more of your teeth? If so, then your dentist is likely to recommend dental implants, since they offer many advantages over other tooth replacement options.
At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire, dental implants are a safe and permanent way to improve the stability of your mouth. They have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their outstanding durability and their realistic appearance. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants will last many years and possibly even a lifetime.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts inserted into the jawbone acting as tooth root replacements for missing teeth. More specifically, implants are used to support natural-looking replacement teeth such as crowns, dentures or bridges.
The benefits of dental implants
Replacing a missing tooth or several missing teeth with dental implants in Buckinghamshire can help to improve your speech and keep other teeth healthy in your mouth.
With dental implants, patients can eat, speak, laugh and socialise with total confidence that their artificial teeth will not slip out of place.
More importantly, dental implants offer a unique advantage over other types of tooth replacement options. Because they replace the tooth root, dental implants prevent bone deterioration in the jawbone, which usually occurs when a tooth and its root have been missing over a long period of time.
Bone deterioration can lead to bone loss, gum disease and other oral health complications. Dental implants provide enough stimulation to keep your jawbone strong and dense, helping to preserve the health of your natural teeth.
Am I a good candidate?
If you are considering dental implants in Buckinghamshire you must be in good general health and also have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implants.
If your bone height and quality are not satisfactory, our dentist may suggest that you receive bone augmentation prior to your implant operation.
What to expect
Dental implants are fixed into your jawbone with surgery. After the operation, enough time should pass for the bone tissue to grow and keep them steady in place.
Once the healing process is completed, your dentist will fix the artificial teeth to the implants. The treatment can take around six months to complete.Back to Blog
