Dental Implants At Woking Dental
Whether you are missing a single tooth or several teeth, the resulting gaps can knock your confidence and stop you from sharing your smile.
If you are looking for a robust and long-term solution to hiding that gap, dental implants could be right for you.
But dental implants offer more than just an aesthetic solution. When a tooth is no longer present the jawbone starts to dissolve and results in poorly fitting dentures that can cause discomfort or infection. As the implant is placed in the jawbone, the jawbone responds by growing and meshing around the implant to maintain the structure of your jawbone.
What is involved?
A dental implant is a small titanium fitting that looks like a cylindrical screw and essentially becomes the root on which we can fit crowns or bridges depending on your treatment recommendations.
A small precision hole is made in your jawbone under local anaesthetic to ensure no discomfort and the implant is placed. You will then be given an appointment for a later date, sometimes several months, to ensure that the jawbone and implant have bonded and formed a strong base for your bridge or crown.

Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants look like real teeth and blend in with your smile naturally. We only use best dental implant systems and the finest dental labs.
Dentures can move around and get loose, which can affect the way you talk. But dental implants are fixed and solid, allowing you to speak with more confidence.
When you have teeth missing then chewing certain foods can be uncomfortable or even painful. Implants allow you to eat all your favourite foods without any discomfort.
When you have missing teeth the jawbone shrinks away, and this can create an older, sunken appearance. Dental implants keep the jawbone intact, allowing the face structure to remain.
Dental implants are a more permanent solution as they are fixed to the jawbone. With regular maintenance visits with us your implants could last a lifetime.
Dental bridges often cut down healthy teeth on either side of the gap, and dentures can be uncomfortable and loose. But dental implants are a more permanent option for missing teeth.
