A missing tooth, regardless of the cause, can make even the most confident people feel self-conscious. If you feel like a missing tooth is affecting your wellbeing, a dental implant might be the solution for you.
At Manchester Dental Practice we want to preserve and enhance your smile. We have considerable experience of successfully replacing missing teeth for a wide variety of, very satisfied, patients. If you need to replace a missing tooth, our dental implant treatment offers you the complete solution to restoring the natural brilliance of your smile.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is essentially an artificial substitute for a missing tooth. It is a more permanent solution to filling a gap and much more stable than a bridge or a denture.
A dental implant works by inserting a tiny screw into the jaw to take on the function of the root. A crown or denture is then attached to the screw, making a secure and simple replacement for a tooth.
Dental implants can last many years. The mere fact they are customised, means they fit perfectly and won’t affect your speech or cause discomfort. Furthermore, the implant will be created to match the rest of your teeth so it will be unnoticeable.
What is the treatment?
When you visit Manchester Dental Practice, you can have the peace of mind of being in the capable hands of a highly professional and dedicated team. We are passionate about giving you a first-class experience with results to boost your confidence and the vitality of your smile. As with every treatment we offer, our award winning clinicians will carefully talk through your options to ensure you can make the best choices about looking and feeling good about your smile.
At Manchester Dental Practice, our dental implant treatments have three stages, which can be covered within a handful of appointments. In the first stage, we create a 3D model of your mouth using sophisticated photos, x-rays and scans. This gives our high experienced dentists a clear plan for inserting the implant which gives you the best results.
The second stage involves a procedure to insert the screw which is carried out under anaesthetic to make it comfortable. The amount of time needed varies from patient to patient depending on the complexity of the implant and whether associated grafting is required. Following this, approximately 8-weeks are set aside to allow for the jaw to heal and the implant to bed in. You will still be able to carry on as normal during this period.
The final stage involves attaching a permanent veneer, crown or bridge to the implant to mask the gap. The replacement tooth will match your natural teeth almost identically.
