Dental implants are a modern and practical way in which a dentist can replace your missing teeth. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham our skilled implantology team can use implants to replace one, some, or even all of your natural teeth. We have scores of happy patients who have already undergone implant treatment to restore both their smile and functionality to their jaw. Read on to discover how you could join them. . .
The importance of replacing missing teeth
At our Farnham clinic, we are keen to stress the importance of replacing missing teeth one way or another. Any dentist will tell you the same; if you lose one or more teeth, it’s best to act promptly. There are of course the obvious aesthetic issues that a gappy smile can cause, which can affect your self-esteem and impact on your interactions in both your personal and professional life.
However, there are also clinical reasons to replace missing teeth; failing to do so quickly can have serious implications for your dental and general health. Having even one missing tooth will immediately put strain on any remaining teeth, which may also become twisted and crooked as they move into any gaps. This can impact negatively on your dental health because these teeth become difficult to clean.
Several missing team can affect your ability to eat a varied and healthy diet, and can also impact on your speech. Thus you will see why replacing missing teeth is so important. At our Farnham clinic we find that dental implants are often the best way to do this.
When you come into Elmsleigh House, Farnham, for a consultation with an implant dentist, they will perform a thorough clinical examination, including x-rays and CT scans as necessary.
Dental implants require good bone density in order to maximise their chances of success. We offer additional procedures at our Farnham clinic to rebuild bone density prior to implant placement if necessary.
We will then arrange your implant surgery. Sometimes we can place immediate teeth at the same time as your dental implants, other times a healing period is required.
