Using dental implants, your dentist can permanently replace your missing teeth. Dove Dental Care in Derby offers implant treatment to patients who have lost one, some, or all of their natural teeth, providing a long-term solution that is not just aesthetically pleasing, but also beneficial to your oral and general health.
Derby dental implants: your options
If you have lost one or more of your teeth, for whatever reason, we invite you to join us at Dove Dental Care in Derby for a consultation to find out more about how dental implants can help. Your dentist will perform a thorough clinical examination, including taking x-rays and scans as necessary to aid with diagnosis and treatment planning.
They will check your level of bone density and, so long as no additional procedures are required to build up your jaw bone or treat underlying conditions such as periodontal (gum) disease, will plan your implant surgery.
The majority of people only need local anaesthetic for the placement of dental implants, which is precisely planned beforehand. If you have come to our Derby dental practice with failing teeth, it is often possible to place your implants in the sockets left by these teeth at the same time as extraction.
Once in position, your dental implants will integrate with your jaw bone and will create a base for your new teeth that is similar to that of a natural tooth root. We do also offer conscious sedation at our Derby practice, for patients of a nervous disposition or those who require a lengthier implant placement procedure.
Depending on the number of teeth we are replacing, your dentist will attach either a single crown, a bridge, or dentures to abutments on top of your implants. This will restore a smile that is both aesthetically pleasing and equivalent in function to a jaw of healthy teeth.
With dental implants you can:
- Eat what you like, making it easier to maintain a healthy diet
- Speak clearly and with confidence
- Smile, laugh, and enjoy your social life free from the fear that your false teeth will fall out.
