If you have lost a tooth or a number of teeth due to decay, an accident or gum disease, dental implants can fill in those missing gaps and create a complete, restored and functional smile.
Dental implant restorations are comprised of an implant, which is placed into the jawbone, an abutment added to the top of the implant and a crown, or other replacement fixture, fitted to the abutment. As dental implants not only replace the missing tooth but also the missing root, they are a great deal more effective and longer lasting than bridges or denture treatments.
As dental implants require some dental drill treatment, a healing period is required before the abutment and restoration can be fitted to the implant. The usual healing time is between 3-6 months, which allows the implant and jawbone to completely fuse for a strong, stable base that can last you a lifetime.
We provide bone grafts for patients who have low bone density, in order to strengthen their jawbones for the placement of dental implants. This may not always be possible, depending on your condition, but if you find that you are unsuitable for dental implants we can provide other effective restorative options.
Dental implants can be used to replace an entire set of teeth, if it is the case that you have suffered complete tooth loss. In the case of complete restorations, between 4-6 implants will be strategically fitted into your jawbone, which will then hold dentures or bridges to restore your smile.
Dental implants Leicester have a 95% success rate and are one of the most effective treatments for the replacement of missing teeth. They also sustain your oral health and prevent tooth movement and bone loss, which can occur if gaps are left unclosed. At Natural Smiles we use Ankylos dental implants, which have been designed for increased stability, fusion and have been used for over 20 years in the replacement of missing teeth.
