Replace a missing tooth with dental implants

A long-term solution to tooth loss

If you suffer from one, or even several, missing teeth, you’re likely familiar with the difficulties that this can bring. As well as problems with eating, drinking and speaking, missing teeth can also cause you to refrain from smiling and have a profoundly negative impact upon your happiness and well-being. At A J Moore & Associates Dental Practice, we are proud to offer dental implants – a simple, long-term solution to missing teeth.

Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are fitted surgically to your jawbone. These posts eventually fuse with the bone itself, providing a solid artificial root onto which a prosthetic tooth is fitted. This replacement tooth is colour-matched to your natural teeth and looks completely natural – no one will be able to tell that you’ve had a restoration.

Dental implants provide a strong foundation, meaning that your new tooth will never slip or slide. Eating, drinking, and speaking will become simple again; and smiling will become comfortable – a natural consequence of your newly restored confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Dental Implants

Most people are eligible for dental implant treatment, but some may require a little more preparation before their procedure than others. Book an appointment today and we will be happy to give you advice regarding your suitability.

Dental implants will last for a lifetime, providing they are cared for and cleaned appropriately – that is, as you would your normal teeth! The prosthetic teeth supported by your implants, on the other hand, can last for over a decade.

The dental implant procedure – which involves fitting a titanium screw into your jawbone – certainly sounds like a painful one! But don’t worry – our team will always use a local anaesthetic to alleviate any pain and ensure you are as comfortable as possible.

Treatment has a success rate of 98%, so very rarely do dental implants cause any complications. However, there are a couple of issues that can occur in very rare cases: Peri-Implantitis describes a destructive inflammatory process that can occur in the area of the gum surrounding dental implants. It can be prevented by a good oral health care regime and regular visits to the dental hygienist. Mild discomfort experienced after your procedure is a normal part of the healing process, and can be controlled through the use of over-the-counter painkillers. Contact us if pain continues for more than a couple of weeks.

Apart from the benefits outlined above, replacing missing teeth can have hugely positive effects upon your oral health and even prevent future complications. Adjacent teeth sometimes move into the gap where teeth are missing, affecting your bite and ability to chew. Implants can also reduce your chances of contracting gum disease by covering exposed, susceptible areas of your gum.
