Dental Implants to Replace Your Missing Teeth Discussed by The Bristol Dental Practice
WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS, YOU GET BACK SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST YOUR SMILE
Using dental implants in Bristol, a dentist can replace anything from one to all your natural teeth. The Bristol Dental Practice offers an extensive range of implant treatments, which will restore both the appearance and function of real teeth. Even complex cases requiring additional work to rebuild bone density can be treated at our Bristol centre.
How dental implants work
Dental implants are replacements for the root parts of missing teeth. They are small titanium screws/posts that are placed directly in contact with your jaw bone under local anaesthetic or dental sedation at our Bristol dental clinic with our implant dentist Dr Jonathan Cochrane.
As soon as the dental implants are in place, a process called osseointegration begins, which sees the implants mesh firmly with the jaw bone. Over a period of a few months, this will create a level of stability that is like that of natural tooth roots.
Once this integration process is complete, you will be recalled to our Bristol dental clinic to have your permanent new teeth attached. These may be crowns, a bridge, or a denture; whichever option suits your individual circumstances, your restorations will both look and function just like natural teeth and can restore your missing teeth.
Some patients who need all their teeth in one or both jaws replacing are suitable for Same Day Teeth treatment. This involves walking into our Bristol clinic with loose dentures or failing natural teeth in the morning, having dental implants placed, and then having a realistic fixed bridge attached to them.
This means you will walk out later the same day with a new set of functional teeth. After approximately six months you will be called back to our Bristol dental clinic to have a permanent bridge attached.
Life benefits of dental implants
By choosing implants, you will soon be enjoying all the action and appearance of a second set of healthy adult teeth. Gone are problems associated with traditional dentures. Once again you will enjoy:
- Eating whatever you like, without restriction caused by loose teeth
- Having teeth that look so realistic, few people will know they aren’t the real thing
- A strong, healthy jaw bone, avoiding prematurely aged appearance
