Dental Implants, Bridges and Dentures
Replacing missing teeth in Tunbridge Wells
The days of having to put up with missing teeth and unsightly gaps are long gone. There are now many different options available:
Dental Implants are Titanium cylinders that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as replacement roots. After a period of healing the body accepts the dental implant and bone integrates with the implant surface resulting in a firm structure which can then accept crowns or bridges, thereby replacing the missing teeth. We provide dental implants through joint treatment with The Implant Centre (www.theimplantcentre.com) run by specialist Oral Surgeons Bill Schaeffer and Guy Barwell. The experience and testimonial of one of our patients can be viewed at www.theimplantcentre.com/people/martin.
Bridges, both Conventional ones, which are supported by crowns and more modern Adhesive Bridges, are available to replace missing teeth. These treatments take away the need and inconvenience of removing dentures at night and feel, to all intents and purposes, like your own teeth in both the natural appearance and function.
However, in cases where alternatives are not suitable or possible, extremely slim-line Cobalt-Chromium dentures make denture wearing more hygienic and much more comfortable.
Your dental surgeon will discuss with you the appropriate options and explain the benefits and limitations of these choices as they apply to you.
