Tooth loss can occur for various reasons, such as cavities, infections, gum problems, accidents, or the removal of a stuck tooth. Cheadle Dental Practice we have been successfully placing dental implants in our dental practice in Cheadle Village, for many years.
Opting for a single tooth implant to replace a missing or failing tooth could be the optimal solution for you, offering substantial advantages over alternative options. Patients often prefer single dental implants because of their permanence, extended durability, comfort, and natural appearance.
A single dental implant involves placing a titanium post in your jaw as a replacement root. This simple procedure is done under local anesthesia, and the implant needs three to six months to heal and fuse with your jaw bone, providing a sturdy base for your new tooth.
After your jaw heals, an abutment is attached to the implant to support your replacement tooth (crown). Abutments can be made of titanium, gold, or porcelain, and they can be standard or custom-made, offering various aesthetic options to suit your preferences.
Finally, a crown is placed on the abutment to replace your missing tooth. Your London dentist ensures the crown matches the color of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance. Rest assured, we prioritize your confidentiality throughout the process.
Natural Appearance: Dental implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. The crown placed on the implant is customised to match the color, shape, and size of the surrounding teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance.
Improved Speech: Unlike removable dentures that may slip or cause speech difficulties, dental implants are securely anchored in the jawbone. This stability helps improve speech and pronunciation.
Enhanced Comfort: Dental implants become a permanent part of your oral anatomy. They eliminate the discomfort and inconvenience associated with removable dentures, providing a comfortable and stable solution.
Improved Chewing and Eating: Dental implants function like natural teeth, allowing for efficient biting and chewing. This can significantly improve the ability to eat a variety of foods, enhancing overall nutrition and dietary choices.
Long-Term Durability: With proper care and maintenance, dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime. They are a durable and long-term solution for tooth replacement compared to other options like dentures or bridges, which may need replacement or adjustment over time.
Convenience and Ease of Maintenance: Dental implants do not require special cleaning or adhesives, making them easy to care for. Regular oral hygiene practices such as brushing, flossing, and professional dental check-ups are usually sufficient to maintain implant health.
Most patients experience absolutely no concerns after having a tooth filling. While the anaesthetic is wearing off, care must be taken not to inadvertently bite the inside of the mouth or cause damage to the newly filled tooth. Avoid hot drinks and food that requires a lot of chewing or crunching to consume for 24 hours. Inform us immediately if the teeth filling cracks fall out or causes discomfort in any other way.
