Dental implants are an increasingly popular treatment path for people who have gaps in their smile. If you have lost or are losing teeth, then consider taking advantage of this great replacement method at Chipping Norton Dental Implant Centre.
The journey to getting dental implants can be quite involved. We make an individual treatment plan for each patient so you will know what is going to happen when you are working with us. However, as a general rule, the process takes anything from two to 14months, depending on whether preparatory work is required. This is due to the length of time the bone takes to knit around the implants once they are in place. This varies from patient to patient. Your dentist will be able to give you advice on any factors that could help or hinder the process.
The surgery itself only takes a few hours. Most patients have a local anaesthetic although, rarely, a general is required. You will be awake and aware, but quite comfortable and in no pain, during the procedure.
Once the process is complete, you will be able to start enjoying your new teeth. The positive impact of getting dental implants in Oxfordshire is something we are happy to see again and again at Chipping Norton Dental Implant Centre.
Many people enjoy the feeling of being able to choose the foods they want to eat freely after dental implant surgery. You can apply as much pressure to dental implants as you can to natural teeth. You can also tear and chew food normally without any special preparation. This is because the implants are fully integrated into the jaw bone and so move naturally along with it.
We think you will be smiling after getting dental implants in Oxfordshire with us. Having a complete set of teeth can be rejuvenating for your look. It also prevents further deterioration of the jaw bone which ensures you retain a rounded look to your face.
All of this is on top of the health benefits of having a full smile. A complete set of teeth is usually a healthier one. They are easier to clean and less prone to infection and the build-up of tartar.
