At Chipping Norton Dental Implant Centre in Oxfordshire, dental implants are used as a reliable and long-lasting means to replace lost teeth. Teeth loss can occur for many reasons, including trauma, gum disease or decay. Whatever the cause the end result can be a noticeable change in appearance that leads to a loss of confidence, not to mention difficulties in chewing and biting. While dentures and bridges were once the only option available, modern dentistry now allows dental implants to provide a more permanent and stable alternative.
What is a dental implant and what are its benefits?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is used as an artificial root for a replacement tooth or crown. It encourages bone growth and so securely integrates into the underlying jawbone, whether in young or elderly patients. Replacement teeth or crowns can then be attached to the implant, giving patients the look and feel of natural teeth. This gives dental implants several advantages over traditional dentures, which are prone to slipping out of place and causing irritation or discomfort. Dental implants in Oxfordshire allow patients to resume a normal diet and speak and smile with confidence again.
What can the Chipping Norton Dental Implant Centre offer me?
We provide a thorough consultation with all prospective patients to find out what your dental needs and history are. During this consultation we will conduct an extensive examination to ensure we provide you with the appropriate treatment plan and explain exactly what the procedure will entail for you.
Dental implants are carried out under local anaesthetic or sedation in a sterile environment. After the procedure there is a healing period of three to six months. The new replacement teeth can then be fitted. With good dental care and brushing, as you would for your natural teeth, dental implants can last a lifetime.
