If you have lost a tooth and are concerned about your smile, a dental implant could be the perfect solution.
Winchester House’s Shrewsbury dentists have expertise in this unique field of dentistry. We are based just a few minutes from Shrewsbury Town Centre and offer free initial consultations as well as a discounted Membership Plan.
There can be a huge number of reasons why replacing a damaged or missing tooth with a dental implant might be the best solution for you. It may be termed as a cosmetic dentistry service but often it is necessary rather than for aesthetic reasons.
Tooth loss is a common problem many of us will face at various times in our lives, and for various reasons. Whether it is from non-restorable decay (cavity), severe gum disease, a failed root canal or accidentally being damaged beyond repair.
The loss of a single tooth or multiple teeth can have dramatic and lasting effects on your other teeth if not dealt with in a timely manner. Left untreated, gaps in your smile may appear unsightly but they can also lead to further problems. For example, failing to replace a missing tooth could cause the adjacent teeth to become damaged or move out of alignment.
Dental implants protect facial bone as well as your healthy teeth; getting them as soon as possible after losing a tooth helps prevent bone loss at the site.
Benefits of dental implants
There are many advantages to dental implants for health reasons but if the gap is towards the front of your mouth, they will also improve the appearance of your smile. Dental implants look (and feel) like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
A dental implant is basically a replacement for a natural root; usually it is screw or cylinder shaped. Successful take-up of a dental implant is as high as 95%. Our dental implants are made from titanium or titanium alloy, which have been shown over many years to be well tolerated by bone.
Implants can either be placed to support one single crown to replace a tooth or a series of implants can be placed that will support a denture. This means the denture is permanently fixed onto the implants. Our Shrewsbury dentists make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
For most dental problems, there is usually a perfect solution… and in some cases there are two!
From teeth whitening and veneers all the way through to dental implants, Winchester House Dental Practice can help. Our Membership Plan applies a 10% discount to dental implants.
