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.
