What are Dental Implants ?
If you’ve a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants offer a cutting-edge alternative to conventional bridges or dentures. A titanium post is placed in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or to stabilise dentures.
Why Straumann Implants?
At Ocean Dental we use the leading brand of dental implant, Straumann, which has earned world-wide trust for over 60 years.
The Straumann Implant System has crafted a product that rises above other dental implants in the UK, using tapered titanium implant anchors to the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. Because the body readily accepts titanium, the gum and jawbone heal quickly and bond completely with the implant. The Straumann Implant System can be used as a fixed base for dentures and crowns, freeing you from the inconvenience of removable dentures.We use Straumann implants because they:
- Integrate remarkably with oral tissue
- Require only one placement procedure
- Heal quickly
- Anchor a variety of artificial teeth
The implant is usually left for some weeks to allow the bone to form a strong bond to the implant. Then, once the implant has integrated with the bone, an artificial tooth is attached for a natural look. The artificial tooth is custom made to ensure the ideal colour, shape and size.
At Ocean Dental we provide all the expertise required to deliver a variety of Dental Implant treatments, ranging from placing a single tooth implant to full mouth rehabilitation to same day teeth and in, cases of inadequate bone, we’re also able to place bone grafts.
The Association of Dental Implantology (UK) provides a lot more information on implants on their website: http://www.adi.org.uk. However, if you would prefer to speak to us directly to have your questions answered please come in and see us or call.
