If you have spaces where natural teeth have been lost, you have four choices:
..Have a removable prosthesis or denture
..Have dental implants
Implants are the the gold standard, effectively giving you back the teeth that were lost. They are 98% successful, providing a perfect clinical solution to restoring a full dentition.
Dental implants are small titanium screws placed into the jaw, onto which new crowns, bridges or dentures can be firmly fixed, resulting a permanent solution, with a natural looking appearance and excellent function.
The first stage of implant treatment here at the Sunninghill Practice is to have detailed initial assessment with our specialist. This will involve X-rays, making models of the teeth, photographs and various other tests and assessments. Following this you will receive a detailed report laying out all the various options, along with costings, enabling you to decide the best way forward.
