According to the latest Adult Dental Health Survey, half a million adults now have at least one dental implant.
At the first appointment, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, including x-rays, to ensure you are a suitable candidate for dental implant surgery.
They will then apply a local anaesthetic before inserting a small screw into your jawbone. This screw mimics a natural tooth root and provides an anchor point for your new tooth.
Over the course of several months, the screw will fuse with the surrounding bone tissue, fixing it securely in place. Once the site has healed your dentist will cover your implant with a dental crown. Your new tooth will look, feel and function like a natural tooth.
With proper care, dental implants can last 20 years or more. If you would like to find out more, call The Smile Gallery on 01342 321 094 or click here to book an appointment.
