Dental ImplantsDental implants quite simply have revolutionised restorative dentistry. They are the most thoroughly researched, precision engineered, advanced technological treatment option available. Dental implants offer permanent replacement to loose & missing teeth & can be a viable alternative to wearing dentures.
From the replacement of a single tooth, to the complete reconstruction of an entire set of teeth, dental implants can transform your mouth, rebuilding the confidence behind a beautiful, functional & secure smile.
Dental implants (and other prosthodontic treatments) can bring back the smile to people who have lost teeth through decay, accidents, gum disease or excessive wear & tear. They are a permanent & fixed solution for missing teeth, providing patients with the nearest possible alternative to their natural dentition.
A dental implant is a metal screw, which is fitted in the mouth at the sight of the missing tooth before being covered with a crown. Dental implants can be used to replace either single teeth or all of your teeth in both the upper & lower jaw.
Implants can also be used as a solution to ill fitting dentures or to help secure crowns & bridges. The process begins with an assessment by your dentist to determine whether implants are the best form of treatment. It might be that other approaches are recommended, such as a crown, a bridge or dentures.
You’re West End Orthodontics implantologist will carefully insert your implants before placing a protective cover over them. The implant establishes itself over a period of three to six months as the bone grows around the screw & holds it firmly in place. A crown is then placed over the implant to replace the original natural tooth.
Although implant dentistry takes time, the results are well worth it, providing you with a beautiful smile & complete confidence when biting, chewing & laughing.
