If you’re missing one tooth, or many, it can have a negative impact on your life. As well as affecting your appearance it can also make speaking and eating challenging which in turn will affect your confidence. Due to advances in the materials used, and improved treatment techniques, dental implants have become an amazing solution for people who suffer with missing teeth.
At Monkmoor Dental Practice we use dental implants to support various teeth replacement treatments such as dentures or bridges, our focus is to fix your smile, permanently.
A dental implant is a small but strong post used in place of the missing tooth root. The post is placed in the jaw and supports a replacement tooth or teeth. Although artificial, a dental implant will function like a natural tooth, restoring your smile and allowing you to speak and chew normally.
Dental implants can be used for a wide range of treatments; one implant can act as a support base for fixing an individual crown, two implants can replace three or four missing teeth using a dental bridge, or multiple implants can be used to provide a secure foundation for a partial or full denture.
Having a dental implant can change your life and is an investment in YOU. Dental implant treatments are tailored to each individual patient’s needs and prices vary depending on how many implants you need and whether you need any treatment prior to placement (such as a bone graft).
If you are considering a dental implant but don’t know where to start, please contact the practice to arrange a consultation with our implantologist. We can discuss your problem, and your expectations, and advise how we can treat you. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have and we can advise what a typical treatment plan would be.
Let’s get your smile back in shape!
