If you lose one or more teeth, you will be pleased to know that you have another option besides dentures and bridges – dental implants. These small titanium posts have gained popularity over the years and have grown to be a favourite among patients and dentists alike.
At Bromley Dental Practice, we have been using dental implants in Bromley successfully for many years. Our dentists offer customised implant solutions to patients who wish to restore one, many or all of their missing teeth. Implants look and feel better than conventional dentures and bridges and since they are embedded into the jawbone they also function just like real teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are screw-shaped titanium plugs, which are surgically positioned into the jawbone. Once in place, they are left to heal for a specific period of time (this is different from patient to patient) and once the healing period has passed, they are mounted with replacement teeth such as crowns or multi-teeth restorations (i.e. dentures, bridges).
Why choose Bromley Dental Practice?
At Bromley Dental Practice, we are committed to providing high-quality, affordable implant treatments to patients of all ages. Our experienced dentists are well-trained in the latest implant techniques and are here to help you decide which treatment is right for you. Each patient is different and we strive to offer the best possible results for a complete smile makeover with dental implants in Bromley.
Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants are completely safe, mainly because they are attached to the jawbone like tooth roots. As you wouldn’t expect your tooth roots to suddenly move out of place, so it is the case with dental implants. Moreover, dental implants can last for many years with proper care and this adds to their safety.
I have only one missing tooth. Can I still have dental implants?
Dental implants are very versatile and there are many restoration options for patients missing one, several or all of their natural teeth. If you are missing one tooth you are likely to be fitted with a single crown depending on your individual case. If you are missing several teeth you can opt for an implant-supported bridge or dentures.
