What Do Dental Implants Look Like?
Have you heard about dental implants? They’re sturdy, lasting replacements for one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or even all missing teeth. Today, we’ll share some top facts about our dental implants here in Stourbridge, including what they look like, how they’re inserted and what to expect from your treatment.
Lifelike, with longevity
Our Stourbridge patients love how realistic our tooth implants are. In fact, they’re so natural-looking, that people probably won’t notice them in your mouth. They blend in very well with your existing teeth, because they’re colour-matched to your smile – and their size is closely matched, too.
Dental implants are from durable materials
A porcelain or ceramic crown on an aluminium root – it doesn’t get much stronger than that. Dental implants are known for being made from body-safe materials that still give you the durability you need to bite and chew with confidence. Since many patients have lost that function due to tooth loss, dental implants restore a lot more than the appearance of your smile.
A straightforward procedure
Following a successful consultation, it’s time to have your tooth implants placed. First, an incision is made in your gum. Next, a tiny drill gently widens the hole, ready for implantation. The titanium part of the tooth implant is then slowly screwed into place – all while you’re under a local anaesthetic. This means you’ll be faintly aware of the process, but not in any pain or discomfort.
Most patients experience a straightforward healing process with tooth implants, where the gum carefully seals around the tiny hole. A temporary crown can be worn during this period. Then, it’s time for the final step – the insertion of the crown. Once it’s successfully placed, you’re ready to go – and flash a brand new smile.
With our expert Implantologist, the process really couldn’t be easier – and we’ll put you at ease by talking you through each stage of treatment.
