What are dental implants? Here at Staplehurst Dental, more and more of our patients are asking about this method of tooth restoration, as an alternative to removable dentures and bridge work.
We know that many of our patients are concerned about what happens if they lose teeth, especially as they get older in Kent. Dental implants are one method we recommend as it provides a long-lasting, easy to maintain and natural-looking approach to tooth replacement.
Implants are a metal screw that is fitted into the jaw bone to replace the tooth root that a false tooth is then fitted on to. As such, they offer a more fixed solution than removable dentures.
Is it right for me?
As with any procedure, implants aren’t suitable for everyone. Here is the basic criteria for anyone considering having dental implants in Kent:
You will need to be in good general health. The treatment is safe and simple, much like having a filling, but it is still surgery and involves having a local anaesthetic. Patients need to be well enough to receive that.
