Dental implants – the long-lasting solution for missing teeth

Do you have missing teeth? It can really knock a person’s confidence and can affect speech and eating habits. However, you don’t need to suffer in silence, with the increased availability of dental implants, you can return to eating your favourite foods, and speaking with confidence in no time.

At Stoke Bishop Dental Centre in Bristol, they offer dental implants as a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are so effective as they act as a substitute for the natural tooth root. This provides an extremely stable foundation for a replacement crown, bridge or denture to be fitted to, which are made to match the rest of your natural teeth.

How do dental implants get fitted?

You will initially be given a complete examination and assessment to evaluate your mouth and the possibilities to return your smile to its full glory. A titanium screw is placed into the jawbone using a local anaesthetic. This fuses with the surrounding bone over approximately 12 weeks. After this, you can return to the practice and have a false tooth (a crown or denture) fitted.

Advantages of dental implants include: –

Improved appearance – they look and feel like your natural teeth and replace gaps. They become permanent as they are fused to the bone.

Eat more easily – as they are strong you can eat chewy and hard foods again, which can be an issue with gaps or dentures.

Speak more easily – no fear of slipping and no more lisping, which can occur with missing teeth.

Comfortable – they don’t slip around like dentures. They act as your natural teeth would.

Greater self-esteem – having your full smile back can increase your confidence in your overall appearance.

Better oral health – dental implants don’t require the adjacent teeth to be reduced so more teeth are left intact. They also don’t allow the remaining teeth to move as happens with gaps.

Durable – with good care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

The dentist in Bristol uses only the highest quality dental implants and natural-looking replacement teeth to create a beautifully restored smile you can be proud of.
