Dental implants are a long-term solution to tooth loss. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire, our skilled implant dentist can use these artificial tooth roots to replace one, some, or all of your natural teeth. As well as keeping new teeth in place in your mouth, dental implants also ensure your jaw bone remains strong and healthy.
A shrinking jaw bone is the primary reason that traditional dentures become loose. It can also change the structure of your face and make you look old before your time. Unlike traditional dentures and dental bridgework, which only replace the crowns of the teeth, dental implants address the issue of the roots. They are made from titanium, which actively encourages bone growth, and after integration are as strong as natural tooth roots.
Buckinghamshire dental implants
We welcome new patients for dental implants consultations at our Buckinghamshire dental practice. In general it is best to replace missing teeth soon after they are lost so that bone loss doesn’t have a chance to take hold, and so that any remaining teeth don’t have time to shift out of position.
At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire it is sometimes possible to place your dental implants straight into the sockets left by extracted teeth at the same time as we remove them. Your dentist will discuss this option if you have failing teeth that need to be removed.
We place dental implants under local anaesthetic at our Buckinghamshire clinic, and most people report it as being more bearable than a tooth extraction. You may experience some swelling and discomfort for a few days after implant placement; this can usually be managed by over-the-counter painkillers and ice packs, and shouldn’t last long.
The process of osseointegration begins as soon as your dental implants are in place. This sees the implants form a strong bond with the jaw bone.
Once the integration process is complete, you will be called back to our Buckinghamshire clinic so that your dentist can attach permanent new teeth. With good oral hygiene practises, these new teeth could last for life.Back to Blog
