If you have one or several missing teeth, it is really important to replace them as soon as possible. Teeth are designed to function as a team, and without some of them, chewing and speaking can be seriously compromised, causing you additional discomfort. More importantly, when teeth are missing, your jawbone gradually deteriorates and you can risk losing more teeth in the long run.
Dental implants offer a viable option to replace your missing teeth and if properly maintained they can last a lifetime. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants in Sutton Coldfield are permanent, and interact with the jawbone in order to create a strong foundation for replacement teeth. At Sutton Implant Clinic, we use high-quality dental implants that have a long history and have proven efficiency over time.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically fixed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. Essentially, they act as replacements for tooth roots. Because they are made of titanium, which is compatible with the tissue in the human body, dental implants have the ability to fuse with the jawbone. Dental implants can secure different types of replacement teeth including single crowns, dentures or bridges.
The implant procedure at Sutton Implant Clinic, involves two oral surgeries. First, dental implants are placed into your jawbone and are left to bond with the bone tissue for a few weeks to a few months. During this healing period, the dental implants will grow around the bone tissue in the jawbone and become stable. During this time, you should be able to have temporary replacement teeth and eat a diet consisting of soft foods.
After the dental implants have bonded to the jawbone, the second phase of the treatment begins. Your dentist will gently uncover the dental implants and attach the replacement teeth on top of them.
At Sutton Implant Clinic we are very particular about the quality of our dental implants and we only use high-quality tested brands such as Ankylos and Straumann to guarantee our patients’ oral health.
