Dental Implants Burntwood
Having damaged or missing teeth poses a lot of health problems. You may not be able to eat properly, and it would affect your self-confidence. It could also lead to muscle strains and discomfort as the remaining teeth begin to shift. Many people have missing or damaged teeth and are seeking a permanent treatment option. One of the common permanent treatment option for missing or damaged teeth is using dental implants.
If you are in Burntwood, you can get your dental implants at Inspire Dental Centre. We have a team of dentists specialised in fitting dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium screws that serve as replacements for the root part of missing natural teeth. Dental implants are placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to integrate with the bone. This serves as an anchor for the replacement teeth.
Dental implants can be used in the replacement of a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. The replacement teeth that will be placed on the implant looks feels and functions like the natural tooth.
Dental implants are long-lasting, preserve the integrity of the facial structure, and reduce the health problems associated with tooth loss.
Who is suitable for dental implants?
Dental implants can be used by anyone missing one or more teeth due to decay or injury. If one or just a few of the teeth are missing, dental implants would be used with a crown or bridge to replace the teeth.
Some older patients are usually concerned that their age would be a limiting factor to how much they would enjoy the dentures, but health is more of a determining factor than age. If your teeth are healthy enough to have a tooth extraction, you are likely to enjoy the benefits of dental implants.
Your dentist is in the best place to determine if you are suitable for treatment with dental implants after a thorough assessment of your teeth.
Is getting a dental implant painful or uncomfortable?
Most persons who have used dental implants report little or no discomfort throughout the procedure and healing process.
At Inspire Dental Centre, we use Straumann Dental implants which are subtle and are placed carefully to avoid damage to the surrounding tissues.
We administer anaesthesia and can consider sedation to help eliminate any discomfort you may experience during the procedure.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants feel, look and function like natural teeth. Some of their benefits include:
How long will treatment with dental implant last?
The duration of treatment for dental implants vary depending on each case, but you can get your implants to function properly within a few days. In some cases, you may have to wait longer before finishing the restoration of your dental implant and for them to function properly.
Will I ever be without my teeth?
Being without your teeth would depend on your situation. Your dentist may offer you a temporary prosthesis while you wait for the process of getting our dental implant to be completed.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of getting dental implants varies throughout. The cost depends on the number of teeth being replaced and the number of dental implants required to support the replacement.
Additional procedures required before getting the dental implant affects the total cost of getting dental implants. These additional procedures would help the implants last longer. You would not need a dental implant for each missing tooth or root.
To get the exact cost of getting dental implants, you would need to book an appointment with our dentists who would thoroughly examine your teeth before you are given a quote.
After the examination, if you are not a suitable candidate for dental implants, our dentist would recommend an alternative treatment option for you.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental bridges supported by dental implants can last for a long time. Most patients who get dental implants expect that it lasts for a lifetime, if properly looked after.
