Why replace missing teeth?
Not having all of your teeth can not only affect your confidence but also affects how well you chew, and what foods you are able to eat. Other teeth can move , changing your bite which can lead to problems with your jaw joints.
Implant supported teeth are as close as possible to natural teeth, and if they are looked after can often last a lifetime. They allow you to eat all the foods you like, and are easy to keep clean and floss. They can be positioned without affecting other healthy teeth unlike certain bridges. They are also fixed in place unlike dentures which need to be removed at night.
What happens during dental implant surgery?
Under a local anaesthetic a titanium screw is placed in the jaw and it takes 10 weeks for implants to glue to the bone. A crown is then fitted which emerges from the gum and looks like your missing tooth.
Anna Maciag also specialises in bone grafting both in the sinus regions and around the front of the mouth if bone has been lost due to infection or trauma . Usually theses treatments are carried out at Chelsea Green Dental under local anaesthetic and intravenous sedation.
