Do you have a missing tooth that is making you feel less than confident about your smile? The Holland Cross Dental team has a solution for you. Dental implants are an ideal way to replace missing teeth and can also provide support for partial or complete dentures. Dental implants are the latest cutting-edge method available for replacing missing teeth, not to mention the most effective.
Dental implants involve the placement of artificial titanium posts and porcelain teeth that are surgically inserted into the upper or lower jaw bone. There is also a metal-free alternative to the regular implants called Ceramic Zirconia Implants, which Holland Cross Dental provides. Once placed, implants are astonishingly natural looking, strong and stable. They will restore your smile and often even enhance it!
Common Reasons for Dental Implants:
There are a number of reasons for which implants can be recommended as method of treatment. As with any dental procedure always consult with a dental professional at Holland Cross Dental. Common reasons for dental implants include:
- Replacing one or more missing teeth without affecting the adjacent teeth
- Resolving joint pain or bite problems caused by shifting teeth
- Restoring chewing, speech and digestion problems caused by missing teeth
- Restoring and enhancing facial tissues
- Supporting and securing dental bridges or dentures.
What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?
Dental implants generally involve three appointments to complete the procedure. Implants are placed gradually over several months. The first appointment will involve having a 3D digital radiograph taken of the area where the implant or implants will be placed. At the second appointment the implant will be surgically placed in the jaw and allowed to heal for an approximate time frame of three months. Once the area has had time to stabilize and heal, a final impression is taken and the new tooth is placed to complete the process. Your Holland Cross Dental team will guide and support you every step of the way. With good oral hygiene, regular dental visits and good eating habits dental implants will last for many years.
Ceramic Zirconia Implants
Ceramic zirconia offers a multitude of benefits in terms of dental restoration. Ceramic zirconia is a metal-free alternative made of a type of crystal which is long-lasting and indestructible. Another benefit of zirconia is that it is hypo-allergenic. In just a few appointments unsightly teeth will be transformed and you can achieve the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
