Dental implants are a great permanent solution used to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. They look and feel exactly as your own natural teeth, this is achieved by using the dental implant to act as a substitute for roots.
An implant is screwed into your jaw bone and a crown sits on top of the implant, to fix the gap. We ensure the colour of the crown matches your other teeth to look as natural as possible.
Many patients cannot tolerate having a removable appliance in their mouth and opted to have implants. Dental implants are used to replace a missing gap without harming the other teeth like a bridge may. They are the best alternative to your own tooth.
Most people would assume that dental implants are painful when placed. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic and no pain should be felt during the procedure.
Not everyone is suitable for Dental implants so a special x-ray, called a CT scan, must be taken to ensure you have enough bone in order to place an implant.
At Rushey Green Dental Practice we use one of the world's leading implants. The amount of research and clinical trails completed on the Dentsply - Astra Tech implant system has allowed the dentists placing your implant to have full confidence in the work they do. Of cause, dental implants like any treatment can fail but the system we use reduces the risk of this.
We want to provide you with the best quality treatment possible, this is why we use such and trusted system. Each week we are dealing with dental implants, putting smiles on our patients faces and giving them the confidence that we could put nothing better in the mouth to replace missing teeth.
