Dental implants are artificial teeth with medical-grade titanium posts that look, feel and function like natural teeth. They are the most advanced way of replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile.
At A Supa Smile, we provide single tooth and multiple teeth replacement with high-quality implants. Your Croydon dentist will perform a thorough assessment and plan your implant needs.
Our doctors are extensively trained and experienced so you can be assured that you can completely enjoy the benefits of your new smile with our dental implants.
Good Candidates for Dental Implants in Croydon
And ideal candidate for implant surgery must have the following characteristics:
- Good overall dental and general health
- Sufficient dense bone tissue in the jaw
- Freedom from gum disease
In addition, if you smoke, you must be committed to give up the habit, especially when the treatment process starts and throughout the Osseo-integration period. You should also maintain healthy habits, follow a good dental care regimen, and visit your dentist regularly after the surgery.
The titanium posts are secured into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. The bone bonds with the implant and creates a strong foundation for holding the replacement tooth.
Osseo-integration, a process in which the implant is allowed to fuse to the bone, will usually take about two to six months. A temporary restoration will be placed until the area is ready for the permanent replacement tooth.
To complete the treatment, an abutment is then attached to the dental implant, which protrudes through the gums. This abutment will provide a stable anchor for the dental crown (replacement tooth).
Usually, the implants can be placed under a local anaesthetic, with very minimal post-operative pain. Because implants are integrated into the jawbone, your new teeth will look, feel and function just like your natural ones.
