Dental Implants in Croydon

If you have one or more missing teeth then a dental implants treatment from Croydon’s trusted dental practice, Gentle Dental Care, can be a great solution. They are strong, permanent, and look and feel completely natural, and can replace everything from a single missing tooth to a completely missing arch.

What are dental implants and how do they work?

The implants themselves are tiny titanium metal rods which are gently placed into your jawbone. Over a few months your jawbone bonds with the rods to form, in effect, a false tooth root.

Because implants use titanium anchors that are fused into the jawbone, they provide steady support for artificial teeth, are more secure and look and feel like natural teeth. Patients who choose it can also eat and brush as though they still have their real pearly whites. Dentures mounted to implants do not slip or shift in the mouth as well.

Realistic replacements for multiple problems

The implants can then be used to support crowns or bridges. They can also be used to hold dentures firmly in place, which means the artificial teeth will not slip or shift in the mouth. This makes it easier for you to eat and speak with confidence.

You may even forget they're not your real teeth as the end result is tooth replacements that look and feel so realistic!

Why choose dental implants?

Other than their durability and aesthetics, why should patients choose our dental implants in Croydon?

  1. Long-term solution to missing teeth

Traditional dental bridges, although cost a lot less, can only last five to ten years. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime when cared for and properly placed.

  1. Reduced wrinkles and loose, sagging skin

Losing teeth often means losing bone structure, which causes the skin around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes to loosen. This could lead to premature ageing. Replacing missing teeth with implants, on the other hand, can make wearers look and feel much younger.

  1. Value for money

At first, implants may seem more expensive compared to other solutions like dentures and bridges. In the long run, however, they are more economical as they last longer and maintenance costs are much lower.

Dental implants - a first choice option

Dental implants are becoming more and more popular and though they are a 'hi-tech solution', fitting one is straightforward and all done under local anaesthetic so you won't feel a thing. Once the implant is in place, we'll probably have to wait about six weeks for it to settle before a crown is fitted on top.
