Dental implants: the answer to missing teeth

If you have lost one or many of your natural teeth, we understand that you might not be feeling complete in yourself. You may have lost a lot of confidence in your smile, as well as your ability to eat certain foods. This can have a devastating effect on your self-esteem and your health.

replace-missing-teeth

It is important that you are aware of the negative impacts that missing teeth can have on your physical and psychological self and that by taking action, you are caring for yourself in a proactive and positive way.

The sooner that you act and decide to get dental implants in Bromley, the less impact that your missing teeth will have on your body. You will be able to quickly revert to your original self, enjoying the foods you once ate and laughing again with confidence.

What are the negative impacts of missing teeth?

Once a tooth is lost, other surrounding teeth can begin to shift and twist to compensate for the exposed area of gum. This can lead to further complications with the rest of your teeth and weaken the hold that your roots have within the gum.

The exposed gum tissue is subjected to damage and infection through cuts and pressure caused by sharp and hard foods that can cause injury. This can cause many of our patients to begin avoiding certain foods which can have an overall negative impact on their health.

We all want to have a beautiful and attractive smile and when we have lost a tooth we can begin to feel less about ourselves. By acknowledging these impacts and deciding to make a change by getting dental implants in Bromley, you are taking the first step to a happier and healthier you.

How does it work?

Dental implants in Bromley are essentially replacement tooth roots. Titanium metal rods are surgically inserted into the jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. This stimulates the jawbone in the right way, allowing it to remain dense and strong. Dentures do not have this effect and this can be the cause of jawbone degradation over time.

Once the site of the surgical procedure has healed, we are able to permanently place a crown or a bridge onto the exposed section of the rod to create a natural looking and feeling tooth replacement.

You are able to use the tooth as you would your natural teeth, restoring your smile to its full functionality again. This permanent procedure when maintained correctly can last our patients for most of their lifetimes.

Aftercare is immensely important, as it is with any kind of dental or medical care. By ensuring that the site of the implant remains clean, you are greatly increasing your chances of success. You need to maintain an appropriate level of oral hygiene and to frequently visit our hygienist who will be able to clean the area with tools that are specifically designed to remove any hard to reach debris.

With a positive mentality and the right approach to oral health, you can enjoy a smile that can last you a lifetime.

Getting dental implants in Bromley is easy

If you have been thinking about getting dental implants in Bromley, then think no more. It’s easy to book a consultation at our practice, Bromley Dental Practice, and one of our dental practitioners will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. We will be able to explain the process to you thoroughly and how the treatment will be individually tailored to suit you. Sometimes you may need to have other treatments before having your artificial teeth fitted, but this is impossible to know until your dentist carries out a full assessment of the condition of your teeth and mouth.

Dental Implants in Bromley

Patients are not always aware that implants are an option for them. Some people think that this treatment can only be useful if you are missing every single tooth, but they are wrong. It is an incredibly flexible treatment that can resolve several dental problems, and it is becoming increasingly popular. It offers alternative options to patients who do not like the idea of removable dentures and can also help those who have a single gap in their smile.

What is an implant?

Many people desire a more permanent solution when it comes to getting artificial teeth, and getting dental implants in Bromley will achieve exactly this. This treatment consists of having a small titanium screw, or multiple screws, inserted into your jawbone. Sometimes you will need to have another treatment beforehand, if your jawbone is not strong enough to hold the implants, but this is rare and something that our dental professionals will be able to discuss with you.

Once the screw has been implanted you will be able to have the appliance you require fitted onto it. This will vary, as every patient we see is an individual, but when you attend your initial consultation our dental practitioner will be able to inform you of what types of appliances will provide you with the right solution.

What types of appliances can I have fitted?

What type of appliance you need will depend on how many teeth you are missing. If you are missing a single tooth then you may have to have a crown fitted, which will close your gap nicely. If you have several teeth missing in a row, then you may require a partial denture instead. Some people will require a full set of dentures to be attached, and this is quite common amongst patients who are looking to upgrade their removable dentures.

Whilst you need one implant if you are having a single tooth replacement, you will not necessarily need an implant per tooth if you are having multiple teeth or a whole set replaced.

If you get dental implants in Bromley they can potentially last for the rest of your life if you take proper care of them. Our dental professional will tell you exactly how to do this when you have your appliances fitted. It is just as important to look after your artificial teeth as your original ones, as plaque build-up and gum disease can still pose problems, and if left untreated these can cause further damage to your overall health, too.

Will dental implants work for me?

Having any kind of surgical procedure demands you carefully consider all of your options to ensure that the procedure is the best possible path available to you. That is why it is important to discuss dental implants in Bromley with us, so that you are able to raise any concerns that you may have.

Dental Implants in Bromley

We will be able to go through a treatment plan with you after a thorough dental examination which determines whether you are suitable for this procedure. Many people who have lost one, some or all of their teeth are able to have this treatment, regardless of age, however if you have an underlying medical or dental condition, this may need to be controlled before treatment begins.

This is to reduce the chances of infection or rejection of the titanium implant, which needs to be surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, when cared for appropriately, this titanium rod will fuse with the bone and the surrounding soft tissues to mimic a natural tooth root.

Dental implants in Bromley can let you enjoy the full functionality of a complete smile. The crown that is attached onto the implant is durable and natural looking so you no longer have to hide your smile or be concerned about what you eat. There is no reason why this treatment will not last you a long time, so by contacting us today, we can get you on the journey to a complete, healthier and more beautiful smile.

How can this treatment make me healthier?

A lot of people don’t know that the body is a holistic being. In other words, everything is intimately connected in ways that scientists don’t even know about yet. Irrefutable links have recently been made connecting heart disease with gum disease, so as we learn more about ourselves, we can work towards identifying causes for health problems that were previously not thought of.

When you lose a tooth, be it from a sporting injury or due to illness, your entire body can be negatively impacted. The sooner you look at replacing that tooth, the less impact on your body it will have.

Teeth can naturally shift when a tooth is lost, which can affect the balance of the entire mouth. It can make for biting and chewing to be more difficult, it can be painful as well as unsightly. You may also find that teeth are less stable, leading you to potentially lose more teeth over time.

The sensitive gum tissue is constantly at risk of damage when a tooth isn’t replaced. Sharp and hard foods can cut the gums and the socket is a breeding ground for bad bacteria. Infection can be a major problem for patients and we know that this can have an impact on your overall health and well-being.

There are so many reasons to consider having this treatment done so that you can enjoy having a fully functional smile again. By speaking to one of us today regarding your options, we can provide you with an open and honest explanation of the procedure and what benefits we know will come into your life.

Are dental implants right for me?

If you have lost one, some or all of your natural teeth, then chances are that dental implants in Bromley will be a suitable option for you to be able to regain confidence in your smile, as well as give yourself a significant opportunity to improve your overall well-being.

Dental Implants in BromleyIt is becoming more and more obvious to those who research the connections throughout the human system that our body is a holistic entity. To put it simply, every part of our body is connected in an intimate way and in ways that we are not even aware of yet.

By grasping this concept, we are able to respect that when one part of our body is unwell or even missing, such as the teeth in our mouths, then the rest of our body can suffer in extraordinary ways.

We understand that poor nutrition can lead to tooth loss, but did you know that tooth loss can also lead to poor nutrition? Gum disease is now being linked to heart disease with several theories supporting this truth. The list goes on.

Dental implants in Bromley is a way for you to be able to rectify some damage that has been done to your body, whether it be through poor oral health, a sporting incident or simple ageing. Dentures or bridges are no longer the only options available to most of our patients who benefit from this permanent and comfortable treatment plan.

What is this procedure?

The implant itself is actually a small metal screw that is surgically placed directly into the jaw, supporting bone density and growth as the titanium fuses with the jaw and the surrounding tissues. A crown or a bridge is then fixed permanently onto this screw and acts as a replacement tooth that feels and looks completely natural.

For those people who have dentures, a unique system has been developed which allows for your dentures to be secured onto several implants. This means that if your dentures have begun to slip and slide as you eat, chew and speak, you can reclaim your confidence knowing that your dentures are securely fixed into your mouth.

They are easily removed for cleaning, providing you with a comfortable option that gives you back the freedom and confidence to eat what you wish.

We would be honoured to have you visit us in our practice. Our staff are friendly, approachable and non judgemental. They would be happy to provide you with the information that you need in a non biased fashion, so that you can make an informed decision about whether this treatment will provide you with an improved quality of life.

By using innovative techniques and the latest digital equipment, we are confident that we are able, with dental implants in Bromley, to provide you with results that will make you wonder why you didn’t have this done before.

A positive decision that will bring you results for life, we believe that by offering our patients the best quality care and service, we are giving you the smile that you have always wanted to share with the world.

Why you should consider getting dental implants in Bromley

Here at Bromley Dental Practice, we are committed to providing the local residents of Bromley with a high degree of professionalism, care and consideration. It is our ethos that by forming long standing relationships with the local residents based on trust, empathy, respect and understanding – a truly different type of dentist can be formed. First started by Bristol University graduate Dr Zaki Bashir, the practice has continued to grow and develop over the years and today we are proud to boast a large clientele of local Bromley residents whom we serve and make an active effort to know personally.

Dental Implants in BromleyCosmetic wonders

Some of the most widely popular procedures here at Bromley Dental are cosmetic dental procedures. We offer a full range of cosmetic procedures and methodologies, and understand the bright and wholesome smile can be essential to living a happy and fulfilling life. At your cosmetic dentist in Bromley we also understand that in some cases the reverse can be true – and that having a smile that is crooked, or teeth that are discoloured or neglected – can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s overall wellbeing and self-confidence. As such, there is a large demand for our various cosmetic procedures, which deal with superficial problems with a patient’s teeth. We offer a range of cosmetic treatments, including tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants in Bromley as well as white fillings and invisible braces. Cosmetic treatments of this nature can be massively beneficial in restoring not only a patient’s smile, but also their self-esteem.

Shining front

Tooth whitening is a procedure whereby superficial stains and signs of neglect on a patient’s teeth – such as stains from smoking, drinking coffee or red wine, or just general disrepair – are power cleaned off chemically using specialist equipment. We also offer a range of home whitening kits which can be undertaken from the comfort of a patient’s home. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic procedure whereby the visible tooth surface is covered with a thin shell of porcelain, and fused to the teeth using a very strong bounding material. This can help brighten a patient’s teeth, as well as fill any gaps within their teeth, making their teeth appear more together and cohesive. Dental implants in Bromley are another cosmetic procedure we offer here, which is only generally used in instances where teeth have been lost or damaged. The dental implant procedure consists of surgically inserting a screw into the space where a patient has a lost or damaged tooth, and then inserting a replica porcelain prosthetic in its place. White fillings are another cosmetic treatment on offer here at Bromley, and are similar to conventional fillings, however the white filling process consists of filling any gaps within a patient’s teeth with a white filling material that is colour matched to the surrounding teeth, and as such undetectable from the outside.

Discreet orthodontics

Invisible braces are another cosmetic procedure on offer here. These are a discreet method of orthodontic alignment that is similar to conventional fused ‘train-track’ braces. The difference being that Invisible braces are constructed using a see through, sometimes removable plastic and as such do not visibly alter the appearance of the patient – unlike ‘train-tracks’.  Treatment of this sort can be vastly beneficial for patients  especially younger ones – as it allows them the ability to undergo essential dental realignment, without attracting any unwanted attention or scrutiny from colleagues or peers.

Making Bromley Smile

Bromley Dental Practice are an independent dental practitioners operating out of Bromley in the south-east of London, established by Dr Zaki Bashir, a University of Bristol graduate. It is their goal to provide a tailored dental service that caters to the individual needs of each of their patrons. At Bromley Dental Practice, it is their belief that they are a different breed of dentists in that they focus entirely on the needs and requirements of each of their patients, rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach that is favoured by too many dental practices across the country. Their highly trained team of professional, yet approachable, dental practitioners are there to provide a bespoke dental experience to all patrons – from whatever stage of life they may be.

Dental Implants in BromleyCosmetic wonders

Some of the most popular procedures at Bromley Dental Practice are the various cosmetic dentistry treatments on offer. They believe that a good and hearty smile is essential to a renewed sense of self-esteem and self-confidence, and through the implementation of some of their various cosmetic dental procedures, find that they have helped achieve exactly that. Teeth whitening is one such service offered at Bromley Dental Practice, which can be extremely beneficial in restoring the smile to the faces of their patients. The process of teeth whitening consists of power-whitening the patient’s teeth at the dental practice through the implementation of specialist whitening equipment and methodologies. Also offered are a wide array of home-teeth-whitening kits which can be used at the patient’s convenience.

Invisible braces

Another service offered at Bromley Dental Practice is the installation of invisible braces, which are a cosmetic alternative to conventional, fused ‘train-track’ braces. These differ from conventional braces in that they are fused using transparent plastic alloy braces rather than metal brackets and as such they are almost impossible to see when worn. Another cosmetic dental procedure which is offered at Bromley Dental Practice is the enhancing white tooth filling. Fillings of this sort are similar to convention fillings, only they are made of a white polymer that is virtually indistinguishable from the enamel of the surrounding teeth, meaning patients can say goodbye to the ugly black fillings of yesteryear.

Filling in the gaps

Another dental procedure available at Bromley Dental Practice is the installation of dental implants in Bromley. Typically, dental implants are only used in cases where the patient’s teeth have been lost or damaged beyond repair. The process of installing dental implants in Bromley begins initially with a small hole being made in the patient’s gum – in the gap where the tooth ought to be. Within this hole, a small titanium screw is inserted, and the mouth is left to heal. During this healing period the bone and titanium fuse together. Next, a replica tooth is constructed from porcelain and is screwed in place. Thus, the gap is bridged with a replica, lifelike replacement tooth and the patient’s smile is restored. Treatment of this type can vastly boost a patient’s self-esteem and confidence, giving them back the smile they once had.

Don’t be worried, we’ve made it simple

If you’re about to have dental implant surgery or are trying to make the decision whether to have dental implants in Bromley, you may be concerned about the procedure. Receiving dental implants, like any major change in our lives, takes some commitment. In Bromley, dental implants are worth the time, effort and expense because of the improvement to quality of life.

Dental Implants in BromleyImplants don’t just improve the way you look, they also fully restore your complete tooth, from root to crown. This provides three life enhancing improvements.

Jawbone stabilisation

Once the implant has fully integrated into your jawbone, the jawbone becomes stable. The implant actively encourages natural growth, which ensures the long-term health of your jaw and prevents any further tooth loss.

Lifestyle enhancements

Since bite force is fully restored, you’ll be able to eat and drink anything you like. In addition, dental prosthetics won’t need to be removed for cleaning. You just need to brush and floss as normal to maintain the implant.

Longevity of treatment

The implant is inert in situ, meaning it will not break down or cause irritation to the soft tissue in your mouth. As long as you take care of the implant and prosthetic, your implants can last for many years to come. Although it may seem an expensive restorative process, when you consider that they are a permanent solution, dental implants in Bromley become highly economical.

The actual process

At Bromley Dental Practice, we ensure you are taken care of from start to finish to ensure you feel informed, supported and relaxed when receiving your dental implants. The very first stage is talking you through every stage and ensuring this is the correct procedure for you.

Once you’re happy to go ahead, we will carry out any preliminary treatments that you may need to ensure optimum health of your jawbone. The surgery is quick and safe, and carried out under local anaesthetic. When the implant is in place, we will then advise you on how to take care of yourself while it settles. We’ll check on you with regular appointments until integration has successfully completed. The final stage is placing your permanent dental prosthetics onto the implant, fully restoring your teeth like new.

New dental abilities

Having dental implants in Bromley will bring a long-lasting transformation to your dental abilities and appearance. The stability of your replacement teeth will rival that of your natural ones, so you can use them without worry. You won’t have to choose soft foods for fear of dislodging your substitute teeth at the dining table. Your implants integrate with your jawbone, so you can bite into and chew those foods you’ve always enjoyed.

Dental Implants in BromleyCustomised improvements

Here at Bromley Dental Practice, we’ve been providing customised dental implants in Bromley to our patients for many years. We can use this procedure for any number of missing teeth. Some of our patients require just a single replacement, whereas others want a whole set. Whatever your particular dental situation, we’ll provide an effective dental replacement that looks great and performs well.

Advances in dental technology mean that temporary replacements, such as dentures and bridges, often look like natural teeth and have a certain amount of user-friendliness. However, only dental implants can give you an integrated solution that doesn’t require any awkward clips or messy adhesives. Once we’ve placed your dental implants in Bromley, they remain where they are. You look after them in the same way you care for your natural teeth.

Who benefits from dental implants in Bromley?

The first thing we need to do is to make an assessment of your current dental health. Our friendly team will help you to feel at ease while they take the necessary measurements of your teeth. You’ll need to have a sufficiently dense jawbone before we can proceed, so we might have to book you in for some preparatory work before we start the implant procedure.

Then, the dentist will place one or more small metal posts into your jawbone. After a rest period, you’ll return to our practice to have your dental implants in Bromley completed, when the dentist securely attaches your custom-made teeth to the posts. You can start to enjoy the benefits of fully-functioning teeth, and these benefits will last for decades as long as you properly care for your dental implants in Bromley.

Strong teeth

Choosing dental implants in Bromley gives you a long-lasting solution to the difficulties caused by missing teeth. Here at Bromley Dental Practice, we’ve been using dental implants to solve a wide variety of tooth loss issues for many years. Our patients benefit from Bromley dental implants in several ways. One of the biggest advantages provided by this treatment is their stability. Once they’re placed, your new teeth do not need to be removed. They don’t add any extra hassle to your oral hygiene routine, so you can continue to live your life as normal.

Dental Implants in BromleyWhy have dental implants in Bromley?

Losing teeth can be a real nuisance. Not only do missing teeth cause gaps in the smile, but they can make eating an awkward experience. Contemporary dentures and bridges are precisely customised and use ingenious methods to simulate the appearance and function of a natural tooth. However, only Bromley dental implants will integrate with your jawbone, to give you stable and powerful substitute teeth that don’t require any clips or adhesives.

If you think implant dentistry is a suitable way forward, you can come to our friendly dental practice for a consultation. We’ll make sure your mouth is in a healthy condition, and that your jawbone is dense enough to receive the implants. We might need to do some preparatory treatments to make sure you’re ready.

Then our dentist will place the implants into your jawbone. The implants themselves are small metal posts, resembling tiny screws. Following a brief spell of rest, you’ll come back to us to have your new teeth firmly affixed to the posts.

Personal progress

Your Bromley dental implants are custom-shaped so that they fit in alongside your remaining teeth. Because they remain in your mouth, they’re as easy to clean as your natural teeth. The advantages don’t end there, though. Bromley dental implants will help you to maintain your facial bone structure. You won’t suffer the sunken appearance that often develops after long-term tooth loss. As long as you maintain them properly, your new teeth will last for decades. You can enjoy the freedom that comes with a fully-functioning set of teeth.

Rock solid replacement teeth with dental implants in Bromley

So, you have started to lose your teeth. You could sit back and ignore what’s going on in your mouth, but at Bromley Dental Practice, we believe that the sooner you get on with replacing your teeth, the better.

This is because your other teeth can be destabilised by the gaps and can even tip into them and fall out.

Dental Implants in BromleySo, why not come into us for a consultation about what method to use to replace your teeth? The latest generation of replacement teeth are on posts that are inserted into the jawbone. These are called dental implants. In Bromley, as in many other places, they have become most people’s first choice for replacement teeth.

Why choose dental implants in Bromley

Dental implants are the only method of replacing lost teeth that give you back your full chewing power without damaging your remaining teeth. They are also the only method that encourages a strong healthy jawbone, ensuring you retain your facial structure as you age.

This may not sound important, but it really is. When you lose teeth, the bone around the now empty socket starts to deteriorate, dissolving itself because it no longer receives impact signals that tell it that it is still in use.

Dental implants replace the tooth roots that deliver these impact signals, and so your jawbone continues to renew itself.

The implants integrate with your jawbone, which grows new tissue all over them. They are held so firmly in place that you can eat whatever you like with them, even steaks and crunchy apples.

Getting dental implants in Bromley

Your dental implants are put in during a minor surgical procedure that is carried out under local anaesthetic. Some people find this quite daunting, so we offer either oral or intravenous sedation to help them relax while we put the implants in.

After a period of healing lasting 2-6 months, your implants will be fully integrated with your jawbone.

Why not give us a call and book yourself in for a consultation? We can take a good look at your jawbone and see if you can have implants fitted.
