Injury, tooth decay, gum disease and more. The list of reasons why people lose their teeth is long. For a reliable, long-lasting solution that improves your look and your dental health, there is just one clear answer: dental implants. Farnham is home to Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic where we offer this modern and clinically proven alternative to traditional dentures. No more worrying about your replacement teeth shifting out of place. No more denture adhesives. Just the freedom to enjoy eating, chewing and laughing as you always have.
What are dental implants all about?
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are placed directly into your jawbone. Once fitted, they actually encourage local bone growth. This leaves you with a firm foundation for attaching your replacement teeth.
A single dental implant can securely hold several replacement teeth. So whether you’ve lost one tooth, multiple teeth or even all of your teeth, dental implants are up to the task.
Dentures versus dental implants in Farnham
Dental implants provide several advantages over traditional dentures. When it comes to stability, they are the outright winners. You can eat tough or chewy foods again without the worry of your replacement teeth budging. When it comes to your long-term dental health, dental implants win again. Bone degeneration and gum recession are common following tooth loss, even among denture wearers. Not so with dental implants, which help prevent these conditions from arising.
In the experienced hands of our dentists at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, dental implants in Farnham truly are a reliable alternative to traditional dentures.
What does the procedure involve?
Precise placement of your dental implants will be a pain-free experience as it is done under local anaesthetic. We strive to address all of your concerns and put you at ease before your procedure. However if you are still feeling anxious, we also offer sedation.
After eight to 20 weeks of healing, you and your implants will be ready to have your custom made replacement teeth fitted. Then it’s time to enjoy life with renewed confidence at mealtimes and with a brighter smile.
