Missing teeth can be very unattractive and can also affect the functionality of your mouth. If you have lost one or more teeth then Dental Implants are an effective, long-lasting way to replace them. At Horsley Dental we provide expert implant dentistry at affordable prices to restore the appearance of your smile and improve the day-to-day performance of your mouth.
A Dental Implant is a titanium screw that is fitted to the jaw bone below the gum line. It replaces the root section of a missing tooth and is perfectly designed to hold a new crown (the visible top section of the tooth) via an abutment that securely connects the two together. The result is looks very natural and the fact that the implants are fitted directly to the jaw gives them great stability. They can be used to replace an individual tooth or multiple teeth (with the use of an implant supported bridge).
At the initial consultation appointment your dentist will assess if Dental Implants are appropriate for you. The procedure will be fully explained and you will have the opportunity to discuss the results you would like to achieve and ask any questions you may have. X-rays will then be taken and a treatment plan created. The treatment itself may require a few appointments as, once the implant has been fitted to the jaw, it will take time to fuse to the bone. Once the area around the implant has successfully healed the abutment and new crown can be fitted.
