Dental Implants in Croydon
Dental implants are the best permanent fixed alternative to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They look and feel exactly as your own natural teeth, this is done by the implant acting as a substitute for your roots. The colour of the crown that sits on top of the implant is made to blend in with your existing teeth, helping it to appear more natural.
Implants are becoming more and more popular amongst dental treatment because of their success rate, the low maintenance involved and long life span. Many patients choose dental implants because they cannot tolerate wearing removable appliances. It is also the most conservative procedure because no damage is done to adjacent teeth such as a bridge may do.
A dental implant is placed into your jaw bone and fixed with a crown on top. Many people would assume that this procedure is painful, however it is carried out under local anaesthetic and no pain should be felt during the procedure.
We only want to use the best quality of implants for our patients, this is why we use Dentsply Astra Tech’s implant system. The amount of research and clinical trials that have been conducted on Astra tech’s implant system has allowed our Dentists to have full confidence when placing implants. Like every treatment, dental implants can fail but the system that we use reduced the risk of this happening.
My implanted front tooth was fitted on Monday 2nd November 2015 and I am very pleased with the outcome of this treatment. I have no problems at all with the new tooth and it blends very well with my own teeth. The dentists and the other dental staff have made this process very easy for me and are always pleasant and considerate.
I came to this dental practice to have a tooth replaced after obtaining information about it on the internet. I am very satisfied with my choice.
