Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire we welcome new patients for implant consultations, no matter what has caused them to lose their natural teeth.
By using dental implants, your dentist will replace the missing root portions of the teeth. This is important for more reasons than you might think: as well as holding your new teeth – crowns, a bridge, or dentures – securely in your mouth at all times, replacing the tooth roots is also important to preserving the health and strength of your jaw bone.
It is a shrinking jaw bone that causes traditional dentures to become loose, which causes problems with eating, speaking, confidence and social life. By visiting Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire for treatment with dental implants, you can avoid all of these common denture problems.
Buckinghamshire dental implants
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed in direct contact with your jaw bone during a small surgical procedure, carried out here at our Buckinghamshire clinic. To replace a single missing tooth one implant and one crown will be placed, whilst to replace several missing teeth a series of dental implants and an implant-retained bridge will be used.
Most people at our Buckinghamshire dental clinic only require local anaesthetic for the placement of dental implants, and can return to regular activities the day after surgery.
Dental implants take a few months to fully heal and integrate with your jaw bone. Your Buckinghamshire implant dentist may fit temporary teeth during the healing period, so that you won’t be left toothless.
After healing is complete you will be called back to our Buckinghamshire dental practice for your permanent new teeth to be attached. These teeth will both look and act so much like the real thing that few people will even notice they are false teeth.
Like natural teeth, dental implants and the teeth attached to them need good oral healthcare, including regular visit to the dentist and hygienist at our Buckinghamshire clinic for check-ups, maintenance, and hygiene appointments. You need to brush your new teeth at least twice a day.Back to Blog
