Dental implants: helping you smile with confidence again
Missing teeth are a burden on your dental health and your facial appearance. Whether you have experienced tooth loss as a result of injury or ill health, dealing with the lifelong consequences can be daunting. The thought of having to wear dentures for the rest of your life can be of little comfort. At Dental Care Group in Brentwood, dental implants are available to give you a modern and reliable alternative.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from lightweight titanium. They provide a base onto which replacement teeth can be attached. They come in the form of small screws that one of our skilled dentists will precisely place into your jawbone. Here they support the growth of new bone. This key characteristic of dental implants gives them two major advantages over traditional dentures. Firstly, they are securely held in place, giving you greater stability so you won’t need to worry about your replacement teeth slipping out of place. Secondly, they protect your jawbone from shrinking, which is a common consequence of tooth loss, even among denture wearers.
Dental implants are clinically proven to successfully and reliably restore missing teeth, whether it’s just the one or a whole mouthful.
Your implant journey
The first step on your implant journey is to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. A thorough examination of your teeth and gums will determine if you are ready for implant treatment.
At our practice in Brentwood, dental implants are fitted under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain. If you are feeling especially nervous, we also offer conscious sedation to relax you during your implant procedure.
After a period of healing, your custom-made replacement teeth will be attached to your dental implants. Just one dental implant can securely hold several replacement teeth, making it less work to reconstruct multiple teeth. The final outcome of your treatment is a complete reconstruction of your missing teeth that looks and feels natural.
With the support and care of one of our highly trained dentists, you can look forward to improved dental health with dental implants in Brentwood. So call or email Dental Care Group today to begin your implant journey.
