Missing teeth? Check out dental implants in Brentwood!
Having missing teeth can affect your self-esteem. If left untreated, gaps in your smile can also lead to further oral hygiene complications. At Coptfold Dental, we are passionate about providing excellent care and we have a solution to missing teeth that is only second to having your natural teeth.
How we can help
You are probably aware of some of the options for replacing some or all of your teeth; bridges, dentures and crowns are used widely by dentists. However, you may also be aware of some of the issues with replacement teeth. Dentures, for example, may be forever lasered into your memory as the things your grandmother wore and regularly loosened as she spoke to you and leaned in for a kiss from her favourite grandchild! At Coptfold Dental, we are here to offer a treatment that will ensure that history doesn’t repeat itself when you embrace your friends or family!
Dental implants in Brentwood are titanium screws that are attached to the jawbone and fuse with it. These screws then act as artificial roots for your replacement teeth to be attached to and the result is replacement teeth that shouldn’t loosen no matter what you do! At Coptfold Dental, we can give you a smile that looks natural as the replacement teeth are made to match your remaining natural teeth if you have any.
What are the advantages of dental implants in Brentwood?
Aside from looking natural and staying firmly put, there are other benefits to choosing implants. By replacing missing teeth, you will have a more aesthetically pleasing smile - that’s a given. But, also, some people with missing teeth find that they experience further oral hygiene or dental problems for their exposed gums and remaining natural teeth. By filling in the gaps, you are protecting your gums and healthy teeth from bacteria and you can continue to floss and brush as normal, making implants easy to maintain.
Some patients also find that when they have gaps in their smile, their face develops a shrunken appearance. By replacing these gaps with implants, you can add structure and definition to your face, giving you a more youthful appearance - that’s not a bad result, right?!
A further benefit is that Implants should also be more comfortable as they are permanently fixed in place, unlike dentures which can sometimes rub and be less comfortable to wear.
What would I need to do to get them?
If you think that dental implants might be for you, all you need to do is book a consultation with our friendly team. We give your mouth a full examination and we may also take some x-rays. If we are satisfied that there is enough bone density in your jaw to attach the screws to, then we should be able to offer implants. If we think there isn’t enough, fear not! We can also discuss the option of bone grafts. During this consultation, you will be able to ask as many questions as you like about the course of treatment, so that whatever decision is made, you are fully informed and happy with the plan.
At Coptfold Dental, we want you to have the best smile you can get and we’re here to put that smile on your face!
