If you are looking for a robust and long-term solution to hiding that gap, dental implants could be right for you. Patients throughout Woking, Chertsey, Cobham, Guildford and Surrey are opting for dental implants as a safe and more permanent solution for missing teeth.
Dental Implants At Woking Dental
Dental implants are a long-lasting form of false teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants are embedded into the gum so that they attach to your jawbone and function just like your usual teeth. With dental implants you can talk, eat and smile with confidence.
But dental implants offer more than just an aesthetic solution; they can aid your dental health too. When a tooth is missing, the jawbone starts to dissolve and results in poorly fitting dentures that can cause discomfort or infection.
When a dental implant is placed in the jawbone, the jawbone responds by growing and meshing around the implant to maintain the structure of your jawbone.
Dental implants are made up of 3 parts. The implant itself acts as the new tooth root and this is placed into your jawbone.
A titanium post is the second piece which is attached to the implant. The third part comprises the crown and forms the tooth that can be seen in your mouth.
Before & After Dental Implants
What is involved?
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.

You will then be given a follow-up appointment which will be used to attach the crown or the tooth to the implant. Often this appointment can take place several weeks later to give the new implant a chance to fuse properly together with your jawbone.
