As a way of replacing lost teeth, dental implants are the most effective and durable method modern dentistry has to offer. In North London, dental implants from Adams Dental will safely restore the form and function of your missing teeth. Whether you have just one small gap in your front teeth that makes you reluctant to smile, or a couple of spaces in the back of the mouth that you are worried about trying to keep clean, or even if you’ve lost the whole set, our dentists can provide you with a solution that will last a lifetime.
What we do when fitting dental implants in North London
The reason this solution lasts so long is that we replace the root of the tooth in the jaw, as well as the visible part above the gums. There are two components, the implant itself and the replacement tooth.
Dental implant treatment begins with the careful insertion of a tiny titanium post into the space left by the missing root. The bone of the jaw gradually bonds with the titanium, making a strong base for the next stage of the implant: a crown, bridge, or denture, securely attached to the titanium post that holds it firmly in place.
As well as renewed reliability in biting and chewing, making you less nervous, dental implants will look and feel natural. The replacement teeth are easy to clean, which helps the overall health of your mouth. Plus, the shape of your face is maintained as the implant encourages your jawbone to maintain its structure, which otherwise often deteriorates after tooth loss. This means that you can avoid the ‘sunken-faced’ look so common among those who have lost some teeth and are lifelong denture users.
A customised procedure
If you think you would like dental implants in North London, Adams Dental will carry out a detailed assessment of your mouth and the surrounding bone structure, making sure that you have enough healthy jawbone to support the titanium implants. Healthy gums are also a requirement, and we may recommend that you first have some treatment to overcome issues such as gum disease.
Whatever your situation, our team will be happy to discuss how we can best restore your missing teeth.
