Dental implants

Published on 26 July 2011 by admin in Dental implants


If you have been unfortunate enough to lose one or more tooth, dental implants can restore the functionality, structure and aesthetics of your teeth and mouth. Church Road Dental & Cosmetics can provide restorative treatments for one or more missing teeth, using either single or conjoined implants to complete your smile and return your confidence.

It is also very important to replace missing teeth for functional reasons, as gaps in your mouth can lead to speech impediments, eating problems and bone loss. Front teeth are important for biting and back teeth for chewing and the loss of either can result in unnatural pressures within your mouth, which can lead to further damage.

Missing teeth can often result in a disruption to your usual eating habits and could lead to certain important foods going missing from your diet. A dental implant is stronger than any other restorative treatment, using a titanium post to replace your missing root, and crown for your tooth, which can both withstand all chewing pressures and forces.

In some cases, a whole set of teeth may be beyond all preventative treatments and will have to be extracted to stop the spread of infection to your gums and jaw. If this happens, replacement options such as dentures may not be the most desirable choice, as they are often uncomfortable, unstable and unnatural looking.

The main benefits of dental implants are:

  • Permanent
  • Feel and looks like natural teeth
  • Prevents bone loss
  • Does not come loose like a denture
  • Does not have to be removed at night

Dental implants can also restore the structure of your lips and cheeks and provide an overall facial rejuvenation, making you look years younger.

The Church Road Dental & Cosmetics team can tailor each treatment to your specific condition and needs. We like to make sure that you are comfortable and well informed about every aspect of your treatment so please ask as many questions as you like and we will always be happy to answer.
