A complete set of healthy teeth is important for your health as well as your confidence. Missing or soon-to-be missing teeth can be successfully restored to full form and function with dental implants. Several adjacent missing teeth can be replaced with an implant-retained denture, or you may need just a single dental implant for one missing tooth. But, are dental implants the right solution for you?
If any of the above points resonated with you, consider learning about the advantages of implant dentistry.
Dental implants are very small titanium screws placed in the jawbone. They fuse with the bone and function as artificial tooth roots to support replacement teeth. The advantages of implant dentistry are numerous:
The best way to find out if dental implants are right for you is to visit Dental Implants London Clinic for an initial consultation. At your appointment, one of our skilled and experienced dentists will examine your mouth and talk to you about your lifestyle to determine the best course of treatment for you. You may need an implant-retained denture to replace several teeth, or just a single dental implant for one missing tooth.
Suitable candidates for dental implants must have healthy gums and a jawbone strong enough to support the implants. In some cases, a bone graft may be necessary to strengthen the bone before the procedure. Smoking must be avoided as it can increase risk of infection, delay healing, and cause the implants to fail.
In implant dentistry we use a local anaesthetic as well as a possible additional sedative during surgery. Patients can expect slight bruising and minimal bleeding during recovery, but a successful procedure shouldn’t involve pain.
