Here at CK Dental in Bristol, we offer dental implants to those of our patients who have lost one or more teeth. Dental implants are a safe and effective option for those with missing teeth, giving a rejuvenated appearance, as well as offering many practical benefits?
What are the advantages of implants compared to dentures?
Dental implants provide a permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth, and avoid the issue of having to make changes to your diet, which can arise with false teeth. Dentures are often not compatible with tough or chewy foods, and this can cause embarrassment when eating around others.
Although having dental implants placed is a more invasive process than that involved with dentures, once the implants are in position and restored, they will look, feel and behave just like your natural teeth, and you don’t need to do anything differently in terms of their care.
Why choose CK Dental in Bristol for dental implants?
The only thing that might prevent you from being a candidate for dental implants is bone shrinkage that can happen if the tooth has been missing for a long time.
However, here at CK Dental in Bristol, we work with a leading maxillofacial surgeon, Dr Michael Stiller, MD.DDS.OMFS, who is able to augment the bone in the jaw, making dental implants possible and also helping to provide a more youthful appearance to the jawline.
How long will dental implants last?
Provided they are fitted correctly, dental implants should last for life. The titanium implants we use here at our Bristol dentistry clinic behave exactly like the natural tooth root; the bone of the jaw grows around them, ensuring they are entirely secure, before our dental surgeon, Cornelius Krause, fits the custom-made restoration of your choice – crowns, bridges or dentures.
