Can a Dentist Replace Missing Teeth?

old couple hugsIf you’ve lost one or more teeth, you may, understandably, feel too self-conscious to smile. The good news is we offer an excellent solution with dental implants. An implant is a biocompatible titanium screw that is safe for the human body. It is screwed into the bone and then left alone for 3-6 months to integrate fully before the restoration part of the process can begin.

The Implant Process

We assess how much space there is in your mouth, how healthy your gums are, and how healthy the teeth on either side of the potential implant are. Untreated or unstable gum disease, untreated dental decay, low bone density, and taking certain medications are factors that would prevent an implant from integrating with the bone.

Once we have determined you are a candidate, we’ll take X-rays and use a 3D planning program to do a virtual surgery of your mouth on the computer. This cutting-edge technology allows us to see possible complications and adjust our surgery plan accordingly.

Longevity of Dental Implants

The longevity of dental implants depends on factors such as your overall health and your dental hygiene regime. However, dental implants typically last between 10 and 25 years. Our experienced dentist, Dr Ash, will explain everything to you and ensure you understand the process, costs and risks.
