Implant dentistry is probably the most complex treatment available. Unfortunately, there is no specialist register for implant surgeons.
How do you choose a dentist to undertake your treatment? Here are the facts about Dental implants.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
While high-tech in nature, dental implants are more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling; you may forget you ever lost a tooth. You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.
Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing.
If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news!
Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own! Under proper conditions, such as placement by Dr Jason Burns and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime.
* We are happy to try and match written estimates from UK-based dentists, using Straumann Implants, providing they have been examined and radiographed by a GDC registered dentist. We will not try to match “flyers”, Groupon (or equivalent) or general advertising offers, that are not substantiated by an examination from a GDC registered dentist.
