DENTAL IMPLANTS

 

Millions of adults in the UK suffer from missing teeth.  This can affect:

- your ability to eat the food you enjoy

- overload neighbouring teeth

- damage neighbouring teeth that are prepared to hold bridges

- social lives, causing pain and embarrassment, especially if a denture moves when you eat or speak

- cause bone loss in your jawbone, affecting the stability of neighbouring teeth and exaggerating the ageing process

 

The traditional solutions to missing teeth were bridges, or partial or full dentures, but each of these treament options can bring its own associated problems.

The ideal solution is dental implants.  These are titanium roots, which replace the root portion of your missing tooth.  Implants can be used to replace any number of teeth, from a single missing tooth, up to an entire set.  At your consultation appointment you will meet Ben and together disuss the outcomes you wish to achieve and the options available to you.  Once the implant is placed, bone attaches to the surface and this makes the implant secure.  Implants will support crowns, bridges or they can be used to stabilise partial or full denture sets.   For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
