How dental implants can change your life for the better

14 July 2016

Dental implants can have a massively positive impact on many aspects of your life. At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent we welcome patients with missing teeth, those who are struggling with loose-fitting dentures, and those whose natural teeth are failing, for implant consultations.

The wonder of dental implants

One of the most exciting developments of modern dentistry, dental implants are replacements for the root portions of missing teeth. Most patients at our Kent dental practice only need local anaesthetic for this procedure, although if you are nervous about visiting the dentist or are having several implants fitted, we also offer treatment under conscious sedation.

After they have been placed in direct contact with your jaw bone, your dental implants will form a strong bond with said bone, and will provide a firm anchor for a crown, bridge, or denture to be attached, whilst simultaneously helping to prevent bone loss.

A shrinking jaw bone is the primary reason people who wear traditional dentures often struggle with their teeth becoming loose. By choosing dental implants, you can help to prevent common denture woes including:

  • Difficulty speaking clearly
  • Problems with eating anything but soft foods
  • Loss of confidence if teeth become so loose they start to fall out unexpectedly.

Dental implants are designed to be a permanent way to replace your missing teeth. As long as you take good care of them, and visit our Kentdental practice for regular follow-up and maintenance appointments, your implants and the new teeth attached to them should last your for many years – often for the rest of your life.

All-on-4 dental implants

All-on-4 dental implants are growing rapidly in popularity at our Kent clinic. As the name suggests, your dentist places just four implants in your jaw to support a full arch of teeth. In this case, your new teeth – in the form of a dental bridge – will be fitted at the same time as your implants.

It really is possible to walk into our Kent practice with missing or failing teeth in the morning and walk out again later that same day with a jaw full of brand new teeth.
