South East London dentist offers dental implants to restore your smile.

06 / 07 / 2012

Missing teeth significantly reduce your functionality and can destroy your confidence. There are several options in dealing with a missing tooth, one of which is dental implants. Implants are the most drastic, but often the most effective and successful, means of replacing a missing tooth. While the initial operation is longer than other dental procedures, the durability and strength of a dental implant should out do any other treatment.

Dental implants are metal, normally titanium, rods that are screwed directly into the jaw bone, replacing the natural tooth root. A false tooth is then screwed on to the top of this artificial root. With time, normally several months, the jaw bone will fuse with the metal rod. The connection between rod and jaw will now be extremely secure and durable. Dental implants are so secure that several false teeth can be supported. If necessary an entire set of false teeth can be secured in the mouth using between 8 and 12 implants.

Implants are not the solution for all problems; your South East London dentist will be able to tell you if they are right for you. Implants are generally only used when teeth are severely broken or missing. If you suffer from gum disease implants will not help as they do treat infection (they may be an option after other treatment has proved effective). Equally, some smokers may be refused dental implants due to the risk of infection in the root that smoking can cause. All patients will suffer some temporary side effects, normally some swelling and discomfort. Dental implants though offer a safe and successful treatment for missing and broken teeth.
