Dental Implants are considered to be the closest replacement to a natural tooth for feel and function.
A dental implant is a titanium rod that is inserted into the bone where a tooth has been removed. It is placed then covered over for a period of time to allow the bone to grow into it and fuse. After a few months it is uncovered and then used as a structure to support an implant crown or perhaps a larger bridge.
Prior to implant placement you will require X-rays or scans of your bone to assess the level and quality of bone. Implants must be placed in healthy bone and the success lies in the planning. Our Implant Surgeons plan the implants then we will restore at Long Sutton Dentistry with liaison with the surgeons.
Dental Implants are considered to be the closest in feel and function to natural dentition and also require regular upkeep and maintenance as teeth do. Regular visits to the Dental Therapist are necessary as are a good dental hygiene routine.
