Articles Dental Implants For Missing Teeth Treatment For Patients In London
Dental implants are a modern and innovative tooth replacement treatment; they are designed to replace the root section of a missing tooth and they can replace any number of missing teeth. Dental implants are a long-term treatment which should last for several years and they can be attached to a single crown, a dental bridge or a denture.
Why should I choose dental implants?
Dental implants are the best long-term treatment for missing teeth and there are numerous reasons why it is important to replace missing teeth. Gaps in your smile will not just have aesthetic implications, they also increase your risk of oral health problems, affect tooth positioning and make it difficult to eat and speak properly.
Dental implants are versatile, durable and they provide optimum aesthetics and functionality; once the implant has integrated and the restoration has been attached, the tooth will look like and function in exactly the same as a natural tooth.
The dental implant treatment process
Before dental implants are fitted, we invite patients to attend a consultation so that we can check that implants are a suitable treatment. Before the implants can be fitted, we drill a small socket (or sockets, depending on the number of implants required) in the jaw bone. The implant is then fitted into the socket and left to integrate into the bone; this process, which is known as osseointegration, takes between 3 and 9 months and is followed by another appointment to attach the new restoration.
