What are dental implants?

It might sound like some hybrid of horticulture and dentistry, however, dental implants simply mean that where a patient has one or more missing teeth, we attach titanium screws to the jawbone to act as artificial roots for replacement teeth which can be in the form of crowns, bridges or dentures. The titanium bonds with the bone, resulting in a secure post to which the replacement teeth may be attached. The result is a natural looking smile; other people won’t realise you don’t have your real teeth, as they won’t be falling out while you talk or when you eat something ‘challenging’, you will be able to bite into that apple! The fact is, with implants, you should be able to continue with a completely normal lifestyle with your new teeth. You can brush and floss as normal, allowing you to maintain excellent oral hygiene and enabling you to keep your implants intact for many years to come. Many people never need to replace their implants!

What are the other benefits of implants at Cleveland Cosmetic and Dental Implant Clinic Stockton?

Having implants doesn’t require major surgery. You will need to have local anaesthetic and while the screws bond with your jaw, you will need to have temporary replacement teeth attached to them. After a few months, you will then have your permanent replacement teeth attached to them instead. Once you have your permanent implants, you could also look more youthful; many people who have missing teeth can have a shrunken appearance to their face. Having implants rejuvenates the face with an improved facial structure, giving you more confidence to smile and be proud of your pearly whites!

Implants look great! What’s the next step?

If you are interested in finding out more about implants, we recommend booking in with us at Cleveland Cosmetic and Dental Implant Clinic Stockton for a consultation, or being referred to us by your dentist. During a consultation, we will give you a thorough examination and we may also need to take X-rays to check the bone density in your jaw. If you don’t have enough bone density to attach the titanium screws, then we may be able to do a bone graft first before treating you with implants. We will be able to discuss the options for your particular needs with you and you are free to ask as many questions as you want to, so that you feel you are making fully informed decisions.

At CDIC, we want you to feel happy and confident about your treatment and the results; come and be enlightened.
