If you have a missing tooth, you will know that your mouth does not function as it used to anymore. Perhaps, over time, you have learned to accommodate the change, changing your diet to softer foods or eating more on one side.
You do not have to live with this and we implore you to seek a solution to improve not only the health and appearance of your smile, but your overall health as well.
A dentist in Soho can offer you an innovative way to replace your missing teeth. With dental implants, you can experience a permanent solution that brings back full functionality of your smile. This means that you can eat the foods you love, laugh with confidence and smile knowing that no one will be able to tell you ever lost a tooth, and you may very well forget over time yourself!
How does this treatment work?
Dental implants are essentially replacement tooth roots, we surgically insert a titanium rod into your jawbone at the precise location for optimal healing and comfort. We pinpoint this place using highly advanced digital scanners. Over time, your jawbone and surrounding tissues will accept the new material and begin to fuse with it.
This is why your dentist in Soho will only use high grade materials so that the body is able to assimilate with it well. Any reduction in the quality of the materials means that your body is at risk of rejecting the implant or infection at the site. We will only ever provide you with the best possible equipment and materials so you can rest assured knowing that we aim for a successful result with all of our patients.
We may be able to place a crown or a bridge, (the tooth part that you actually see), immediately during the surgical process of inserting the implant, or we may need to wait until it has healed in order to do this. It really depends on your unique situation, which we will discuss with you during the initial consultation.
What else will happen during the initial consultation?
If you are interested in having a dental implant, then we will invite you to come and have a scan and a thorough examination so that we can determine your immediate suitability for the treatment or whether you need to undergo prior treatment before we can provide you with your new tooth.
These scans will let us see what your jawbone density is like, with options to have a sinus lift or bone grafts to accumulate more bone in order for the implant to comfortably sit within it to be stable and secure.
Other health conditions need to be determined as well. If you have gum disease or decay in your other teeth, this may compromise your ability to heal adequately. We will need to ensure that these conditions are controlled before we can continue with the implant treatment.
We look forward to providing you with a smile that is again fully functional and that you are pleased to be able to share with the world. We understand that losing a tooth can be devastating, but we as your dentist in Soho are pleased to be able to offer a permanent solution to our patients.
