Losing teeth can be a stessful experience with lifelong consequences. Loss of confidence and further dental complications are common after tooth loss. The idea of wearing dentures can also be off-putting. Dentistry today offers a modern, reliable solution to missing teeth – dental implants. Kent is home to Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited, where dental implants are routinely fitted to bring a smile back to our patients’ faces.
What are dental implants?
These small titanium screws act as artificial tooth roots. They sit in your jawbone and provide a stable base for the attachment of replacement teeth. Unlike dentures they won’t slip out of place when you eat or chew. Once your treatment is complete, your dental implants will provide you with a natural look and feel. For dental implants in Kent you need look no further than Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited.
What you can expect from your implant treatment with us
Following a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, we will present you with a comprehensive treatment plan. This includes precise planning of where your dental implants will be placed. Our Specialist Prosthodontist, who is specifically trained in dealing with dental implant procedures, will place your dental implants. This will be carried out under local anesthetic or for more nervous patients, sedation. Either way the procedure will be pain-free and we will strive to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable.
After 8 to 12 weeks of healing, your implants will fully integrate into your jawbone. Dental implants actually encourage new bone growth so you can be assured that they will be firmly set in place. Over the next two to three weeks your replacement teeth will be custom made and fitted. With good dental care your implants will last for many years to come.
Enjoy the lifelong benefits
Dental implants in Kent don’t just address the immediate cosmetic impact of tooth loss. They also prevent bone degeneration and receding gums around the site of tooth loss. These conditions are common following tooth loss and denture use alone cannot prevent them. Take advantage of advances in dental technology and call or email us today.
