This is a surgical procedure performed by a trained dentist, helping to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw bone. This is usually used for the future placement of dental implants. You need quality bone in the area of your dental implants, and this kind of procedure can help to prepare you for it. There are a number of different methods that can be used to raise the sinus and allow new bone to form. This procedure can greatly increase your implant success.
If you have deformities in your upper or lower jaw, you won’t have the amount of bone needed to place your dental implants. This defect may be due to injury/trauma, wearing dentures, or developmental defects. This will increase the chance of success for your implants as well as improve the appearance.
If you feel your dentures aren’t secure, have difficulty chewing, or hide your smile due to missing teeth, implants can be the right choice for you. We offer dental implants in Kingston that look as natural as possible, helping you to forget that you ever lost a tooth in the first place.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants have replaced teeth for around 30 years. Providing you look after them as instructed, they can last your whole life. This is now the preferred method for most people who want to replace their missing teeth. It is an immediate and permanent solution that looks great. There are two different types of implant: Endosteal and Subperiosteal. Endosteal is the most common type of implant. Subperiosteal is used for patients who can’t wear dentures and have minimal bone height.
About The Dental Implant Procedure
You will be under a local anesthetic and the implants will be placed in a small operation. The gum will be cut and lifted and a small hole will be drilled where the implants are to be placed.
There may be some discomfort after the process as you will have stitches. This is normal for the healing process. It can take 3-6 months for your implants to bond to the jaw, depending on where they have been placed. You can wear your complete dentures throughout the healing period once they have been adjusted after your surgery.
If you want a totally natural looking option for your missing teeth provided by friendly staff, then implants from Bridge Road Dental Practice in Kingston are right for you.
