Dental implants are one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth. At All Smiles Bromley, our implantology work is carried out by leading implant dentist Dr Ash Deved, who can treat even the most complex of cases. If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, read on to discover why dental implants could just be the best investment you will make.
What are dental implants?
In essence, dental implants are bionic tooth roots. Our teeth comprise two parts – the crowns that are visible in everyday life, and the roots beneath the gum line. Other tooth replacement solutions, such as traditional bridges or dentures, replace the crown part but do not replace the root.
Dental implants are placed directly in your jaw bone in a minor operation, which is carried out here in the comfort of our state-of-the-art dental practice. Many patients need only local anaesthetic for this procedure, reporting that it is more bearable than a tooth extraction, but treatment under sedation is also available for nervous and phobic patients.
After a healing period, which is typically a few months, permanent new teeth are attached to your implants. These may be crowns, dentures or bridges, depending on your clinical need and your personal preference.
Booking an implant consultation
Prior to having implant surgery, you will need a detailed implant consultation with Dr Deved here at our Bromley clinic. To maximise the chances of treatment success, the placement of dental implants is meticulously planned, using the latest technology. We use an in-house CT scanner and the Simplant computer-guided implant treatment system here at All Smiles in Bromley, which is an advanced surgical guide enabling precise placement of your implants. This enables your implants to be placed in exactly the right location to support the forces generated by biting and chewing, and also avoids any danger of nerve damage.
