How can dental implants benefit you?
Restoring your oral health and appearance with an Access Dental Care implant
Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular solution for improving your oral health and appearance if you are missing a tooth or teeth. Access Dental Care offers patients a number of dental implant solutions, including single tooth and multiple tooth implants.
From your initial consultation, we provide you with the answers to all of your questions and concerns in order to select the most effective treatment option. Prior to your implant treatment, your initial consultation will include an oral health assessment, which will help determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. Certain factors such as chronic gum disease or a lack of suitable bone within the jaw can lower the success rate of the treatment.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a small titanium post inserted into the jawbone, which then act as an artificial root for a prosthetic tooth.
Once the surrounding gums have healed and enough time has passed for the implant to fuse to the jawbone, an abutment is then attached to the crown in order to secure the crown, bridge or denture.
The prosthetic looks identical to your existing teeth and will blend in seamlessly, both in form and function. This provides you with the confidence to continue on with your regular day-to-day life without the embarrassment of visible missing teeth and the inconvenience of adhesive denture cream.
The Access Dental Care team are committed to providing patients with effective solutions that help relieve pain or fix any aesthetic issues related to missing teeth.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Because the implant acts as a replacement root for your missing tooth, dental implants ensure there is no further loss of the jawbone and assist in keeping your existing teeth aligned.
As dental implants act just like your natural teeth, it is easy to maintain your oral health following your implant treatment. However, regular dental check-ups are still essential for ensuring the longevity of your implant.
Post dental implant treatment
Following a dental implant treatment, patients may notice a significant improvement in speech, dental hygiene, and chewing ability, as well as an improvement in the overall appearance of their smile.
Healing time can differ between patients, however you can generally expect between three and six months down time. If you have been missing a tooth for an extended period of time, you may require a bone graft. For this procedure, an extended recovery period is normal.
