Implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth with a fixed option that you do not need to remove – these offer the most natural ‘teeth like’ experience, depending on the situation they can replace teeth in a day, or can take longer.
An implant (made of titanium) is placed in to the bone where the tooth root would have originally been and is fused into the bone. This can take time but then provides a very solid platform to support further restoration such as crowns, bridges or to hold dentures in place. This works on single missing teeth or multiple teeth with separate crowns. Implants will generally be used to provide fixed replacement teeth, that you do not need to remove.
For a single missing tooth the most common recommended option would be a single dental implant treatment. This is the most long-term solution available with predictable results, and means the tooth can be designed to match the neighbouring teeth and the other teeth require no treatment.
The titanium implant is fixed into your mouth so feels like a normal tooth once the treatment is complete. The top part of the implant is similar to a dental crown and is made of the latest hard-wearing porcelain material to look and feel like a new tooth.
This sort of implant can also be used to support implant-supported bridges or dentures.
It is important to see a highly experienced and knowledgeable dentist for dental implants. They require a great deal of skill and expertise to fit, and there are multiple dental implant brands on the market. At Bespoke smile we only use the highest quality dental implants, and our implant dentists are highly trained in advanced and simple implant dentistry.
Traditional dental implants typically require waiting for a few months to allow time for the jawbone to integrate with the titanium implant. But, taking advantage of modern technology, we can now choose to treat you with a system that only takes one dental visit with our Teeth in a Day treatment.
