Dental implants for effective tooth replacement therapy

It is important to have a good dental hygiene routine in place to make sure that your teeth and gums are clean and strong, so that you can retain your natural teeth for the whole of your life. Unfortunately poor oral hygiene promotes many different dental issues which can eventually result in tooth loss if left untreated or not attended to. Visiting your dentist here at Fresh Dental Care is very important for making sure that you have no underlying dental problems. But if they are found, they can be treated early on, effectively and successfully before they can cause substantial or irreversible damage to your teeth.

Avoiding the dentist can have a hugely negative impact on your dental health. Many dental issues are asymptomatic and unless you undergo a thorough examination of your teeth and gums you might be unaware of the problems which may be developing in your mouth. Eventually these conditions may result in tooth loss or you may find yourself in a dental emergency where you then have to undergo a tooth extraction. Tooth loss as an adult is an embarrassing and uncomfortable situation to find yourself in, so speak to us today and find out about dental implants Maidstone.

What are dental implants?

Most of us have heard of dental implants Maidstone, but did you know that they are now the gold standard in replacing missing teeth? They have been used for treating tooth loss for some time now, however it is only in the last two decades, after many advances in implant surgery, that oral implants have become highly popular for replacing missing teeth with dentists and patients alike.

Dental implants Maidstone are small titanium screws which are designed to replace the root of your missing tooth. Whether you have lost your tooth as a result of poor oral hygiene or you have been in an accident and your tooth has been knocked out, speak to us at our practice and find out how dental implants can benefit you by replacing your missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are suitable for replacing a single tooth, adjacent teeth, multiple teeth or your full set of teeth.

Speak to us to book an appointment and visit our dentist in person today. You will undergo a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, and together with our dentist you will be able to decide on an individually tailored treatment plan, according to your dental requirements and your personal preferences. Any dental issues will be dealt with prior to implant surgery.

You will also undergo a thorough examination of your jawbone using X-rays or specialised scans if necessary, to make sure that you have sufficient healthy bone for the titanium screws to be inserted firmly and securely to hold your choice of dental prosthesis. Bone grafting may be necessary for successful implant surgery and by speaking to our dentist you will be able to find out more about whether or not this is necessary for you.

The titanium screw is drilled into your jawbone and initiates a natural process known as osseointegration which encourages the formation of osteoblasts around the implant, these are bone forming cells that enable the implant to be embedded securely in place. This takes a few months to complete and then you are ready for your crown, bridge or dentures depending on your personal preference and individual requirements.
