Are you missing one, several or all of your teeth? Dental implants are the most viable option for replacing them. Unlike other tooth replacement methods, dental implants give your teeth a superior level of functionality and a natural feel.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as replacement tooth roots. They can be used to support a single crown, a dental bridge or a denture. At Chipping Norton Dental Implant Centre in Oxford, dental implants are considered to be more predictable than other treatments and are the next best thing to your healthy natural teeth.
Replace individual teeth
Dental implants are regularly used to replace one missing tooth. Our experienced dentists will place a dental implant to replace your missing tooth root. A connecting piece known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant and acts as the support for the replacement crown. Implant-supported crowns feel, look and function exactly like your natural teeth and can be brushed and flossed exactly like them too.
Replace several teeth
If you are missing several teeth in a row, our dentists can place dental implants to support a dental bridge. Implant-supported bridges have nearly the same biting and chewing power as your natural teeth and provide the necessary pressure needed to stimulate the jawbone and prevent bone loss.
Replace all your teeth
Patients with most or all of their teeth missing, often opt for traditional dentures as they are more cost-effective compared to individual dental implants. Luckily, modern dentistry has advanced and you can now have your dentures stabilised with dental implants. Implant-supported dentures do not need adhesives to stay in place, are very stable and restore your chewing and biting power, sparing you from the discomfort sometimes caused by regular dentures.
Benefits of dental implants in Oxfordshire
Dental implants are long-lasting and convenient – they can last a lifetime if you take good care of them. Since they fuse with the jawbone they act and feel like regular teeth, while preventing the deterioration of the jawbone that so often occurs after tooth loss. Finally, unlike dental bridges that require grinding down of other healthy teeth, dental implants protect your natural teeth by keeping them strong and healthy.
