Dental Implants - Replacing Missing Teeth

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small part of titanium which is placed in the jaw bone in place of the missing natural tooth root. The implant is inserted under local anaesthetic. Titanium is generally well-tolerated by the human body and bone bonds to it very strongly. Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual crowns and multi-tooth bridges. The dental implant can also be used as an anchor for entire dental prostheses.

When an implant is placed, it can be some months before the new tooth is fitted. A temporary denture can be made for cosmetic purposes. But the impact from the lower jaw can disturb the implant and affect the healing process. As an alternative an adhesive bridge can be made which is fixed to the adjacent tooth. This provides a tiny, but permanent gap between the tooth and the new implant.

We offer dental implants in Telford, Shrewsbury and all throughout Shropshire. If you are interested in dental implants please contact us on 01952 460119.
