How dental implants can give you back your smile

Dental implants are a thoroughly modern way to replace missing teeth. At Norghlight Dental in Milton Keynes, our skilled implant dentist Dr Sunil Passan can replace one, some or even all of your natural teeth with implants.

How do dental implants work?

dental implantsTreatment with dental implants involves a dentist placing one or more small titanium screws in your jaw bone. This involves a minor surgical procedure, which is carried out here at our Milton Keynes dental practice under local anaesthesia or sedation, depending on your preference. These titanium implants replace the root part of a missing tooth or teeth. Crowns, bridges or dentures can then be attached on top.

Implants are the only permanent way to replace missing teeth. With proper care and regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, they can last you many years – in some cases even a lifetime.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

As well as being permanent tooth replacements, implants have many other benefits over traditional alternatives, such as unsecured dentures. To find out more about what implants can do for you, book a no-obligation consultation at our Milton Keynes dental practice.

Here are just some of the advantages of dental implants:

1. They look and act like natural teeth. You will have a smile that you’ll be keen to show off, and the ability to bite and chew food with confidence, enjoying a healthy, balanced diet once more.

2. Unlike traditional dentures, restorations attached to dental implants will not become loose and uncomfortable over time. They will stay firmly in place, avoiding the potential embarrassment of loose dentures falling out.

3. Dental implants help to support bone growth, and prevent bone loss. This can help you keep a more youthful appearance for longer.

4. Implants are an investment in your future. They can last for life with good oral hygiene. At our Milton Keynes dental practice, we believe investing in your smile is one of the best decisions you can make.
