Our aim is to provide tailored treatment plans to each patient and ensure that they receive the best care possible. Dental implants Teddington is the leading way to replace missing teeth as you can achieve a natural looking smile that functions naturally too.
How dental implants work
Dental implants are metal screws that are attached to the jawbone. They act as artificial tooth roots, and they can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants are the most natural-looking and feeling way to replace missing teeth. They are also very durable and long-lasting. In fact, they could even last a lifetime, if you take care of them properly by brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing, and coming to see us for your routine check ups!
Are dental implants right for me?
If you are missing teeth, dental implants may be the right choice for you. You will need to book in with us for an initial consultation to talk to our dentist about whether implants are right for you and to discuss your concerns and goals for your smile. We will be able to examine you and to discuss the treatment options.
Benefits of Dental Implants
If dental implants are a viable treatment option for you, you may be pleased to hear that there are many benefits to having dental implants. For starters, imagine having natural-looking teeth. Dental implants look just like your natural teeth because we match the replacement teeth to any natural ones that you have in terms of the shape, size and colour of them. Dental implants also improve the function of your smile. You should be able to chew your food more effectively and speak more clearly. This means that eating out with friends doesn’t mean anything is off the menu and you can talk to your heart’s content, without the fear that your teeth could loosen. This should also improve your self-esteem.
The treatment process
The treatment process for dental implants does not involve major surgery. We can fit your implants in a single appointment, where you will only need local anaesthetic and sedation, if you feel nervous. We then attach temporary replacement teeth to the implants, while your gums are healing. You will then simply need to return a few weeks later to receive your permanent replacement teeth and have them attached to the implants.
