Restore confidence with dental implants in Windsor
When you experience a missing tooth, it can come as a shock. It feels different, and perhaps more significantly, it can significantly alter the look of your smile. Here at The Old Windsor Dental Practice, we offer dental implants that will restore your smile and provide many long-lasting benefits to your oral health.
More than just a confident smile
Going for dental implants doesn’t just boost your confidence in your appearance, it’ll put faith back into the ability and health of your teeth.
The teeth work as a set, and when one is missing, it can risk weakening the remaining teeth. Going for dental implants in Windsor can improve your ability to chew and properly digest food, prevent problems with your surrounding teeth, avoid a ‘shrunken jaw’, and generally improve your oral health and overall well-being.
Why dental implants over other treatment?
While dental implants in Windsor aren’t suitable to everyone, they are a popular option for those who are looking to fix a gap in their smile, as they hold benefits over other treatments such as bridges and dentures, for example:
- They are often more predictable than other treatments, allowing you to have a sense of the overall result and knowing what to expect
- They don’t affect the healthy remaining teeth by using them for stablity
- They protect healthy bone by preventing bone loss
- They allow you to eat and speak without having to think about uncomfortable removable dentures
- They look natural, as the implant acts as the root of the tooth, providing a solution that most closely mimics the natural teeth
- They provide a long-lasting solution, lasting upwards of 25 years.
How to dental implants work?
The journey of going for dental implants in Windsor goes as follows:
- Appointment: an in-depth consultation to see if you are suitable and plan your treatment
- Surgery: the implant is inserted into the jawbone under local anesthetic
- Healing: it is then left to heal and mesh with the jawbone, taking around 3 months
- The tooth: finally, the crown is placed on the tooth by means of an abutment. It is made to match the rest of the teeth in size, shape, and colour.
