Has an accident or health issue caused you to lose or break one or more teeth? Are you self-conscious about your smile, or finding it difficult to eat certain foods? Dental implants (artificial tooth replacements) could be the answer!
How dental implants work
Looking, feeling and functioning just like a natural tooth, modern technology has enabled implants to be custom-made, shaping and colouring the implant to look exactly like your other teeth, and with proper care and regular oral hygiene, these can last a lifetime.
The beauty of dental implants is that unlike crowns, no neighbouring teeth are required as support, which means no filing down is required. The implant is simply placed into the jawbone to support crowns, dentures or bridges, depending on your particular needs.
At the Wentworth Clinic Cosmetic Dentistry, we also offer the latest ‘tooth in one hour service’ for selected patients (when appropriate). Stage one and two (as described in ‘The Procedures’ below) can be carried out simultaneously.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Teeth look, feel and function like your own
- Individually made ceramic crowns and bridges
- Neighbouring teeth are untouched
- Replacement of tooth root strengthening jawbone
- Lifelong tooth replacement (for many)
- Restore natural chewing capacity
