What Types Of Dental Implants Are There?

Tooth loss can be a sensitive topic, whatever the cause may be. But when it comes to missing teeth, our top dentists based around Marylebone work hard to restore our patients’ smiles and give them back their function, appearance and confidence once again.

Today, we’re looking at one of the most popular and effective treatments for tooth loss: dental implants. If you want to know more about them and how they could work for you, read on.

What are tooth implants?

We explain dental implants as being permanently implanted false teeth. Made of two component parts – root and crown – they are surgically inserted into the gum under a local anaesthetic. Once healing has taken place, the crown is fitted and you’re free to enjoy life once more.

Why have tooth implants?

Dental implants are a way to restore the function and appearance of the smile. For example, you’ll be able to eat, chew and talk; you might help to reduce sagging around the mouth caused by tooth loss; and you can help create the illusion of a perfect, natural-looking smile. There are so many great benefits that you’ll wonder why you didn’t choose to have treatment sooner.

What types of dental implants are there?

You can choose between individual implants for single teeth; multiple implants for several teeth missing in one location; or full sets of dental implants to replace top or bottom teeth in their entirety. It really depends on the patient.

Are dental implants necessary?

You could be at risk of bone or gum recession, or your remaining teeth might spread out more in the mouth, which puts you at a higher risk of oral health problems (e.g. trapped food causing decay), not to mention the potential for braces and orthodontics in the future.

Are dental implants expensive?

No, they’re competitively priced at our welcoming dental practice and offer fantastic value for money – an effective tooth replacement that looks and acts like your natural tooth, right down to the shape, size and shade.
