Cosmetic Dental Implants
As a preventative specialist, we’ll help you to keep your
natural teeth throughout your life, something that’s perfectly
possible with the right diet, a careful oral hygiene routine and
careful brushing and flossing. If, at any stage in your life, you
do lose one or more teeth however, it doesn’t have to mean
wearing dentures. Implants are regarded by dentists as being the
next best thing to natural teeth and are a great alternative to
dentures. Quite simply, implants are artificial teeth which are
made to match the shape and colour of your existing teeth so they’ll
blend in with your smile.
The artificial teeth are held in place by small titanium rods.
Your natural teeth are held in place by roots, and the titanium
rods mimic these roots, making sure the artificial teeth are firmly
fixed in your mouth. These rods are usually fixed directly into
the jawbone so they’re very secure.
Once in place, implants are permanent, if taken care of, so you
won’t need to worry about biting or chewing for example. We
also offer mini or same day implants which can be fitted in a much
shorter time than conventional dental implants. To find out more
simply talk to your dentist or a member of our practice team. We’re
always here to help.
