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.
Implants 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.
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.
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.
