What are dental implants in Orpington?
At our dental clinic we offer dental implants as a form of restorative dentistry for those patients who have lost teeth and wish to have a more permanent replacement. Dental implants are titanium screws (typically less than one centimetre long) which aim to mimic the natural tooth’s root within the mouth. Dental implants can not only be used to support single porcelain crowns, they can also be used as a stable fixture for bridges, and whole rows of porcelain crowns within the mouth.
What to expect from the treatment process
Many individuals may be aware of this popular and long lasting form of tooth replacement, however they may not be aware of what to expect from the treatment process. Much like any dental treatment at our clinic, dental implants always start with an initial consultation.
What happens during an initial consultation?
During an initial consultation patients can expect to work with our dental healthcare professionals to distinguish the best possible course of treatment for themselves. Aside from a discussion about the chosen treatment, our dentists may also administer a thorough examination of the affected area.
The first step to achieving your dream smile
Once we have decided that implantology is best for you, we can start your treatment. The dental implant itself is inserted within the jawbone. During the healing process, which can take from around three to six months, a temporary fixture can be attached, to ensure that your physical appearance is never compromised.
The healing process
Once the dental implant has fully fused with the bone, the permanent fixture can be attached! Despite the healing process taking several months, once the custom-made crown is adhered, this can last for many years.
