Dental implants are an excellent treatment option for people who have missing or failing natural teeth, as well as those who have been struggling with poorly-fitting traditional dentures. The experienced implantology team at Kent dental practice Staplehurst welcome new patients for implant consultations, to discover how these tiny bionic tooth roots can change your life. We think you’ll like what you hear. . .
If you opt for treatment with dental implants, they will be placed by a skilled implant dentist here at our Kent practice. Put directly in the jaw bone in a minor operation, which can take place under local anaesthetic or sedation depending on your preference, these titanium screws replace the root portion of a missing tooth or teeth.
After a healing period of a few months, your dental implants will have formed a very strong bond with your jaw bone, creating a stable base on to which your dentist will then attach your new teeth – crowns, dentures, or an implant-retained bridge.
In some cases, usually when all the teeth in one jaw need to be replaced, it is possible to attach your new teeth at the same time as placing your implants in a procedure known as All-on-4.
Implants are the only permanent way a dentist can replace teeth. They have a success rate of up to 98%, and they and the restorations attached to them won’t just look like real teeth, they’ll act like them too.
This means that not only will you find renewed confidence in your smile, but also you will be able to maintain good nutrition by eating a healthy and balanced diet, which is often impossible with standard dentures.
We offer free consultations at our Kent practice for those interested in treatment with dental implants.Back to Blog
