Replacing missing teeth with dental implants Brentwood
Whether you have a wobbly tooth, are booked in for a tooth extraction or have lost a tooth already you need to speak to us at Coptfold Dental and find out about replacing your missing teeth as soon as possible. Missing teeth can cause a huge range of problems and the longer you wait to replace a missing tooth the more complications you will face. It is also likely that replacing the tooth will take longer, be more expensive and you will have fewer options available for you. This is why you need to book an appointment with our dentist at Coptfold Dental as soon as you notice that a tooth has become wobbly or if you are affected by unpleasant symptoms which indicate that you may be suffering from tooth decay or gum disease. If addressed early on then tooth decay and gum disease can be reversed and you may be able to save your tooth. If you avoid the dentist then tooth decay and gum disease are the main causes of missing teeth. One missing tooth can quickly result in more missing teeth so speak to us at Coptfold Dental today and let us put together a treatment plan for you.
Dental implants Brentwood
Here at Coptfold Dental, our most popular method of replacing missing teeth is with dental implants. Dental implants Brentwood have been used since the 1960s. Dental implants Brentwood have a success rate of more than 95%. They can last for the rest of your life which is why they are the treatment of choice amongst our dentists and patients alike. If you have already lost your tooth then our dentist will examine your remaining teeth, assess the site of tooth loss to make sure that it has healed completely and put together a treatment plan accordingly. If you are about to undergo a tooth extraction then our dentist will help you plan ahead.
For dental implants Brentwood you need your remaining teeth to be healthy and when necessary they will be treated or extracted. You require a healthy jawbone and will be given a bone graft if you have suffered from bone loss and you also need to be in good health. Certain medical conditions can affect the success of dental implants and we will make sure that any medical conditions are either under control or being treated to ensure that dental implants are suitable for you.
Dental implant surgery
Dental implant surgery is an invasive surgery that can require two to four hours depending on how many teeth you are replacing. It is carried out under local anaesthetic and sedation depending on your individual needs. A small hole is drilled into the bone socket of the missing tooth and a titanium implant is inserted into the hole and left to heal by a natural healing process known as osseointegration. This process takes approximately four to six months and during this time the implant will become fixed into your jaw. Once the healing process is complete, the implant can be fitted with a crown or a set of dentures. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or to replace all of your teeth so speak to our dentist today and let us put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you.
