Dental Implants

The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us experience - but now thanks to Dental Implants, tooth loss does not have to be a permanent problem. If you’re already embarrassed about missing teeth or dentures that don’t fit properly and stop you eating the things you want to,you really should consider dental implants. Whilst dentures are still a common solution to missing teeth, implants have passed them by as the preferred form of treatment. It’s easy to see why. Implants are a form of artificial tooth that are fixed onto a titanium screw that’s fixed into your jawbone. Because of this, they simply don’t slip out of place and you can have absolute confidence in them when talking, laughing or even biting into that crisp apple or juicy steak!

Another benefit is that implants are much more comfortable to wear than dentures. You’ll soon forget that you have an implant and there’s no sensation of ‘something foreign’ being in your mouth.

Also, you don’t have to treat the implant any differently than cleaning your normal teeth. You brush as normal – no need to take them out every night!

They’re also extremely tough and will last you a lifetime if you brush and floss them the same way that you treat your normal teeth. And no matter what foods you bite into, they can cope!

Dental implants have the strength of natural teeth and can last a lifetime if you look after them properly. They let you bite, chew, talk and smile without worrying. They also encourage bone growth and density, protecting the structure of your face.

Although dental implants initially cost more than some other options, their strength and longevity means that they are really a cost effective solution in the long-term. Here at Adelphi Dental Care, we offer a number of different finance options to make dental implants an affordable option for you.

How do dental implants work?

A dental implant is a tapered or cylindrical post made of titanium that is surgically placed in your jawbone to act as an artificial root. Over time, the surrounding jawbone fuses to the implant, anchoring it in place and giving it the same strength as a natural tooth. Once we’re happy that the implant has bonded, we then add a small connector called an abutment to the top of the implant. This abutment sits on the gum line and gives us a secure base on which to connect your replacement tooth or teeth. With dental implants, it’s possible to replace a single tooth or to use an implant-supported bridge or implant-retained dentures containing multiple teeth. By the end of your treatment, no one will be able to spot that you’ve had restorations.

What’s next?

The first step is to decide whether you are suitable for dental implants. Most people are but we will need to look at your overall dental health and also check whether you have enough jaw bone to successfully embed an implant. If you don’t, you may need a bone graft before implants can be fitted but this is something we can talk through with you and it certainly doesn’t apply to every case.

The best way to find out more is to book a FREE consultation with one of our Smile Advisers to discuss dental implants in more detail. Simply call 01772 253 443 and we can arrange a convenient time for you. You can also email us at smile-adviser@adelphidentalcare.co.uk.

I found the staff calm and gentle and it didn’t hurt a bit! My tooth actually looks better than the old one before it was chipped. Reception is fun and I actually enjoyed coming.
