What are Dental Implants?

dental implantMany adults are can lose their teeth due to oral disease or physical injury. Dental implants are a treatment for replacing missing teeth with artificial ones called crowns.

If you are looking to plug those gaps left behind by missing teeth and enhance your look through dental implants, you can visit one of many dental practices in Greater Manchester, including Unidental in Stockport. This dental practice offers a safe and professional environment in which you can find out if implants are something you’re interested in.

How Do They Work?

There are two parts to a dental implant: the metal screw placed into the jawbone and the crown or bridge that is fixed on top. The metal screws serve as the roots whilst the crowns act as replacement teeth. If you decide you want dental implants, it is important to understand the two stages of procedure. Firstly, with the aid of local anaesthetic, our dentists will place the implant into your jawbone, where it will integrate into your jawbone as new bone grows around it. Once these artificial roots are stable, they will be fitted with your new set of replacement teeth.

What We Do Differently

Our dentists use a digital system for additional precision and accuracy when planning your dental implant procedure. This is because we understand that every person’s set of teeth is unique and so for a dental implant to work effectively and fit properly, the pin-point precision of a computer system is key. Using this technology dental implants can be placed within 48 hours of your initial consultation.
