Dental Implants in Erith, Kent

Dental implants are a strong and long lasting solution

Are you concerned about the gaps in your smile and losing your teeth? Do you have any missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted? Then dental implants could be the ideal cosmetic dental treatment to bring your smile back to life. They look natural and are virtually undetectable. Dental implants are also very strong and last for many years.

At North Heath Dental our experienced dentists have the skills and expertise to replace missing teeth. There are a number of options available such as dentures, dental bridges and dental implants. Dentures are a set of false teeth which sit over the gums and can be removed. They are not fixed and can be unstable or uncomfortable when the gums may change shape over time. Dental bridges are an alternative solution to filling a gap but this requires adjusting the adjoining teeth to fix in position.

A dental implant is a stable and fixed solution that supports its own tooth. The implant itself is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone. An abutment is then attached to the screw before the dental crown is finally fixed in position. Dental implants look natural and feel like a real tooth. The dental crown is shaded to blend in with the adjacent teeth so when you laugh or smile, the new dental implant will be virtually unnoticeable.

The dental implant procedure requires several visits to the dentist and is planned over several stages. Our dentists will first carry out a full assessment in an initial consultation to check whether a dental implant will be the right dental treatment for you. The step by step process will be explained in detail and then a planned appointment schedule will be agreed before treatment begins.

The procedure begins with the implant screw placed into the jawbone. This will require a number of weeks to bed in before the abutment can be attached. Once the dentist is happy with the healing process of the dental implant, the dental crown can be made and fitted to complete the treatment.

There are many advantages to the dental implants. Please fill in the enquiry form below if you would like more information. We would be happy to speak with you and invite you to North Heath Dental for an initial consultation.
