We offer services from check-ups to dental implants. You might be thinking, what are dental implants? Well, some adults might experience loss of their natural teeth for many different reasons, and you might have heard about bridges and dentures as they are the most common tooth loss replacements. However, with dentistry advancing over the years, we are now able to provide a more permanent fix without the risk of a denture becoming loose which comes in the form of dental implants. Dental implants are a safe solution to getting your full bite back.
Dental implants are small pieces of metal that are placed in your gum where you tooth came out. They help the remaining bone to grow as well as make sure the surrounding gum tissue doesn’t disappear, as a common thing dentists notice is that over time your tissue will resorb and can affect your jaw bone.
Get a Dental Implant in Leicester with the help of Thurmaston Dental, and restore full biting function your mouth. With dentures and bridges, you won’t regain the same biting function. Dental Implants allow you to eat solid foods without a worry! Implants are exactly like your regular teeth, and they will last for as long as you care for them. If you start to neglect your teeth, then the effect on your implant will be the same as if you neglected your natural teeth such as gum infections and bleeding.
• If you currently have dentures, a dental implant will improve the appearance of your teeth as they are permanent fixtures.
• It can improve your speech as dentures and bridges might not be fitted properly.
• They will provide a better bite and comfort while eating.
• Boost your self-esteem! Be confident to smile.
• Dental implants are a long-lasting solution.
Firstly your dentist will give you various tests to see how much bone has remained there; this is because if there isn’t enough or if it’s not healthy enough it might not be possible to offer implants.
Then we can start the procedure of placing the implant. An incision is made in the gum, and a small hole is drilled into the bone, the implant is then placed into that hole, and your gum will be stitched up. This will then need time to heal; the healing period depends on individual circumstances. The next step is to make a new incision where the implant is, a healing cap is then screwed onto the implant to help aid the healing process, and in a few weeks, this will be removed. Once it has healed, we can attach the abutment to the implant, and attach your fake tooth.
You will be able to get a dental implant if you have had tooth loss due to any of the following:
• Tooth Decay
• Root Canal Failure
• Gum Disease
• Trauma to your teeth (injury)
• Excessive wear and tear
