The Ultimate Solution to Replace Missing Tooth
DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT AT Old Town Dental Care
Dental implants can change your life for the better – enhancing your confidence, facial appearance and smile as well as your oral and general well-being. Dental implants can offer a permanent solution to missing teeth, actually mimicking your natural tooth root and providing a fully functional replacement for your missing teeth.
At Bridge St Dental, we provide the very best in dental implant treatment – without the fear factor. An implant is a small titanium metal screw that is carefully inserted by our skilled dental surgeons into the jawbone to replace a missing natural tooth root, acting as a support for crowns, bridges or holding dentures firmly in place.
Although your teeth may look and even feel perfectly fine to you, there could be a possibility of something happening below the gums, inside the tooth, presence of cracks or tiny fractures, or even some decay that is difficult to see or is hidden. Many dental problems don't cause you any pain until the condition becomes very serious. This is why we highly recommend routine check-ups to prevent any serious conditions
Regular check-ups will help us detect any dental problems earlier, which means the treatment is usually easier, quicker and much cheaper compared to those that let their problems develop into something more serious and thus requiring more frequent visits and undergoing more expensive treatments.
Our warming staff will welcome you and make you feel at ease whether its your first check up or not.
We will listen to any dental concerns you may have so we can recommend a treatment which is most suitable for you if you do indeed need the treatment.
During the check-up we will:
Examine your whole mouth
Search for any signs of decay, cracks or disease
Take X-rays if necessary
Assess the condition of previous restorations you’ve had such as fillings etc
Explain any further treatment that you may need
Provide you with a treatment plan suited to you
Answer any questions you may have
If you require no treatment, your dentist will advise you on when you should come for
your next check-up.
At the end of the check-up, we may offer you a cleaning to make sure your teeth feel fresh and clean so that you'll feel like smiling all day long!
SINGLE TOOTH DENTAL IMPLANT
If a single tooth has been lost due to an accident a dental implant can provide a reliable long-term solution in many cases. This treatment does not require any cutting of the adjacent teeth – such as would be the case with a traditional bridge.
MULTIPLE TEETH DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants can also be used to support multiple teeth. This usually involves the placement of two implants, which are used to support a fixed bridge.
FULL ARCH DENTAL IMPLANTS
As an alternative to a denture it is possible to replace all the teeth in an arch, anchored by several implants. The number of implants required is dependent on the clinical assessment of each individual case.
REMOVABLE DENTURE DENTAL IMPLANTS
A loose fitting denture is a common problem for thousands of people. Securing dentures using dental implants restores chewing function and reduces irritation of the gums, leading to an enhanced quality of life. The additional support and stability gives the wearer confidence to eat what they want and smile and laugh without being self-conscious.
