A Dental Implant is a perfect solution if you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth. A Dental Implant can be used to support the most natural looking tooth replacement and can dramatically improve your smile, eating and confidence.
A Dental Implant is a small but strong titanium post used in place of a missing tooth root. Dental Implants can be used for a wide range of treatment: one implant can replace a single missing tooth, two implants can secure a loose denture, or multiple implants can be used to replace all the teeth in the mouth.
If you are you considering Dental Implants here at Atrium Dental, we are pleased to offer a FREE initial Consultation. This will give you and us a good idea as to whether orthodontics is the correct treatment for you or your child.
We'll listen to your wishes and concerns, explain the process and options to help you choose the right treatment path for your individual needs.
Missing teeth can be a problem for your dental health and your own personal well-being. Dental Implants can be used in a variety of situations to help replace missing teeth.
Here at Atrium Dental, we will be able to help replace your missing teeth to restore your smile and improve your confidence, however your teeth came to be missing. A Dental Implant replaces the root of a tooth and it can be used to hold the visible part of the tooth, known as the crown. A single Dental Implant is needed to replace a single tooth, but not every missing tooth needs to have an implant beneath it – a bridge can be used, supported by several dental implants, to replace many teeth.
Your Dental Implant treatment journey starts with a FREE initial Consultation. This should provide you with a good understanding of what treatment will involve, the various orthodontic treatment options and an initial guide to costs.
If looked after correctly, Dental Implants will last for many decades. We use the Ankylos Dental Implant system which has proved to often last a lifetime, achieving fantastic results for most of our patients.
For most Dental Implant-supported teeth you will be able to clean around each supporting Dental Implant by brushing and flossing in just the same way that you would around your own teeth. For the first few months after the Dental Implants are placed, your dentist may ask to see you more frequently to monitor your cleaning and the implants. Once your dentist is satisfied your treatment is performing as planned, ongoing care will be the same as for patients with natural teeth.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged bones. If required, we will discuss this procedure with you in detail at your initial appointment. We also offer (with Edward) the Shatkin Dental Implant system which can be used where there is minimal bone, and the patient does not want or cannot have a graft.
The most important visit is the initial consultation where we will ask a series of questions regarding your previous dental and medical histories. This will help us determine whether Dental Implants are the best option for you.
If you are in good general health, Dental Implants are likely to be a suitable option for the replacement of your missing teeth. However, habits such as heavy drinking and smoking can compromise the initial healing time and have a detrimental effect on the long-term health of gum and bone surrounding each implant.
Yes, we are able to provide finance payment facilities to help you spread the cost. If you would like to understand more about these options, then please get in touch.
