Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Torquay

A solution for missing teeth, dental implants look like, feel and function the same as natural teeth. They are specially designed screws that are implanted into the jaw to act like natural tooth roots. Implants are a permanent replacement for missing or damaged teeth and, with routine care, they have a high level of success.

What Does the Treatment Involve?

Before placing an implant, great care is taken when extracting the tooth or teeth that are being replaced. This is to prevent damage to the gum and jaw bone, therefore minimising pain following the procedure. The implant is then placed into the jaw bone to mimic the function of regular tooth roots.

Once the implant is placed, the tooth or teeth are restored. This is usually done using a crown or denture, depending on how many teeth are being replaced. The discomfort an implant patient will experience is often no different to that of a tooth extraction.

How Many Implants Will I Need?

It’s a common misconception that each missing tooth has be replaced with an implant. In fact, a whole arch of teeth can be replaced with 4-6 dental implants. As a result, we’re seeing an increasing number of patients replacing their dentures with dental implants, as they are more comfortable, convenient and can be longer lasting than traditional dentures.

Another reason patients are making the switch is due to the amount of foods they are no longer able to eat. Dental implants have enabled them to enjoy all foods, due to their similarity with natural functioning teeth.

Teeth in a Day

‘Teeth in a day’ is becoming an increasingly popular treatment, as patients can come into the practice for their appointment and leave the same day with a whole mouth of new teeth! The results can be life changing for patients, giving them the ability to chew, vastly improving the appearance of their smile and helping them to regain their confidence.
