When you lose a natural tooth, the complications are more than just cosmetic. Chewing becomes painful and when adjacent teeth start shifting into the gap, tooth decay and periodontal problems result. Don’t compromise your dental health: call Beech House Dental Surgery to find out more about our dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium post placed surgically into your jawbone to act as a substitute root. Titanium integrates easily with the surrounding bone tissue, allowing it to anchor the replacement tooth.
How are dental implants placed?
Placing dental implants is generally a two-step process. During the first visit, the implant is surgically placed in your jawbone after your dentist thoroughly numbs the treatment area. You will be fitted with temporary dentures until your second appointment three to six months later, after the implant has thoroughly integrated with the bone tissue. During this section, a replacement tooth, known as a pontic, will be placed on the implant to restore function to your smile.
How long do dental implants last?
With proper care, good oral hygiene, and routine dental visits, dental implants will look, feel, and function in top form for years to come. Our implant systems are all made by top quality and trusted manufacturers, so the integrity of your restored smile will be first-rate.
