A dental implant is a replacement of a whole tooth, not to be confused with just a crown replacement or a veneer where the existing tooth may be used as a base or anchor point.
Implants offer a solution where, due to the loss of a tooth or a tooth needing to be extracted, other treatments which would use an existing tooth as a base or anchor are not viable.
A dental implant is made up of three parts;
- The implant itself, which replaces the root of your tooth, the bit below your gums in your jaw you can’t see.
- The abutment, this connects the implant to the crown, while some of it will be above the gum line, you won’t see it because of the crown on top.
- The crown, this is the part you see when you look at your teeth in the mirror. On a real tooth it’s enamel, for an implant it can be made of porcelain or metal. A crown can also be used without an implant if the original tooth is suitable.
We are happy to answer any questions you might have. You can call us on 0151 722 0618, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dental Implants bring back the benefits and sense of security that come with having strong healthy teeth. You can bite with confidence into that apple, chat away freely and laugh again with ease.
Feel confident and carefree once again while interacting with people – whether it’s a business discussion, chatting freely with friends and family, or simply enjoying the pleasure of a kiss.
A natural-looking implant-borne full denture not only gives you back a confident smile, it also transfers the chewing power back to the jaw bone. This is vital for healthy bone stimulation and maintains the shape of your face.
- How much do Dental implants cost?
Probably the biggest question in people’s minds when they think about getting any dental work is the cost.
When searching for dental implants, it can seem daunting and even confusing. Not only can costs vary, but some can seem high. There isn’t a standard answer to how much implants will cost because the work required is tailored to your needs.
One thing we can say that is important to remember is your teeth, bone and facial structure adjust themselves to the space left by a missing tooth. So we do recommend arranging for a consultation as soon as possible to avoid additional costs that may occur from problems caused over time.
The cost of dental implants also does not have to be paid in one lump sum. It’s common for people to use alternative payment arrangements such as monthly payment plans to make things more manageable.
- Do I need Dental Implants?
Missing teeth can lead to additional complications beyond the missing tooth itself. As an example, bone growth in your jaw is reliant on the teeth it holds in place. Meaning over time your jaw won’t maintain healthy bone structure, which in turn can mean problems for neighbouring teeth, eating and your faces shape.
Beyond the unseen complications, implants aid in restoring your smile to how you remember it.
If you’re unsure whether dental implants are what you need, arrange a free consultation with us here as soon as possible. So we can put you on the right track whether it be dental implants or one of the other treatments we offer.
- How long do Dental Implants last?
Dental implants are a complete replacement of your tooth, a good quality dental implant with appropriate oral hygiene and dental visits can last 20+ years.
- Can I have dental implants?
Most people can have dental implants, similar to when we talk about cost though we aren’t able to say if you can have implants without a consultation. While this will help us identify any reasons you may not be able to have dental implants, it also helps us advise whether you need them – there may be better suited treatments to resolve what is troubling you.
We recommend you don’t try to make this decision alone. The internet is filled with a lot of information that can confuse or be misunderstood. We’re here to help you decide what your options are, and which is the best course of action to take.
