Are dental implants in Birmingham the right option for you?
If you have lost a tooth, several or all of your teeth, dental implants in Birmingham will be able to offer a bespoke solution to allow you the comfort and freedom of a fully functional smile again.
It is only after losing a tooth can you fully comprehend the value of having a complete set. Teeth are designed to work together and you may find that over time, remaining teeth begin to shift and move due to the lack of support that they have.
This can cause further complications as well as leave you more susceptible to injury. It is best to simply ensure that you look to replace any missing teeth that you have as quickly as possible, so that your body experiences little negative impact from the loss.
There are several different options you can choose from, including removable dentures, bridges or dental implants in Birmingham. The latter is quite often strongly recommended by many caring dental health care professionals due to the durability and longevity of the treatment.
You can benefit from decades of comfort and not have to worry about what foods you are able to eat when you opt for dental implants in Birmingham. The treatment process can be quite lengthy however as there is a minor surgical procedure involved which you need to recover from. Every treatment plan differs between patients in order to address their personal needs, so it is best to discuss with us what the best course of action will be for you.
What is the treatment process?
An initial consultation with us is needed to ensure that you are suitable for the treatment process. Should we find that you do not have enough bone density in your jaw to allow for a secure and strong hold of the implant, then further treatment may be recommended to prepare you for this procedure.
Some patients who are not of sound oral or physical health may also be advised to improve or control their condition before undergoing this minor surgical procedure.
Should everything check out, you will undergo several CT scans, digital scans and photographs in order to digitally pinpoint the best precise location for the implant. With advanced technology, dentists can ensure a more comfortable fit and a minimised healing time.
Our dentist will surgically place a titanium rod into your jawbone to act as a replacement tooth root. Over the course of the next few months, this rod will fuse to your bone creating a very long lasting and secure site in which a crown or bridge can be permanently adhered.
The false tooth, whether it be a single crown or a bridge of several teeth can be placed onto the titanium rod several weeks after this surgery has been completed. This allows for you to heal properly and for us to make sure that it was a success.
These false teeth are created to perfectly match your remaining teeth in shape, size and colour. They will feel and look extremely natural in your mouth which is important for you to be comfortable with your new smile.
