We will always make every effort to repair and restore a damaged or decayed tooth to help prevent tooth loss. Keeping your natural teeth is not only good for how your smile might look, it also provides important support and structure to the rest of the teeth, jaw and face.
However, in some cases keeping the tooth is not possible, and this is where a dental implant can be a wonderful option for patients who have lost a tooth or teeth. A dental implant involves carefully attaching a false replacement tooth to an artificial root, which not only improves the look and feel of the teeth and mouth, but helps to prevent future problems with the shape and position of the other teeth and jaw.
The Highest Quality Treatments
Patients who chose a dental implant at Dental Perfection will also benefit from the extensive expertise of our clinician Dr Pramod Sabharwal, who has a special interest in this area of dentistry and has attended courses around the world in order to deliver the highest quality implant treatments.
If you are considering a dental implant, your dentist will take the time to assess your suitability, explain the process and answer any questions you may have. If you decide to go ahead, a local anaesthetic will be carefully administered to ensure you’re comfortable, before a small titanium screw is implanted into the jaw bone, which will act as the new ‘root’ once healed.
A Firm, Secure Solution
When the bone has firmly attached to the implant, you will return to the practice to have your new replacement tooth fitted (a temporary tooth can be fitted in the meantime). Your new permanent tooth will be carefully matched to the surrounding teeth in colour, size and shape, and will be securely fitted to the new implant.
Dental implants can also be used to support a denture or bridge, especially useful when patients have lost more than one tooth. Once the dental implant treatment is complete, patients feel like they never lost a tooth, giving them the confidence to smile, laugh and enjoy their favourite foods once more.
