Dental Implants the answer to denture issues for patients from Chelmsford

Dental implants are a form of dental surgery, where false titanium rods are implanted into the jaw area where there is a missing tooth or teeth. They can support other types of dental treatments like dental crowns, dentures, up to two teeth at a time for patients from Chelmsford.

How do they support dentures?

Dental implants work well to form a strong foundation for dentures, so dentures no longer become loose or even fall out. Dentures alone often leave people feeling unable to eat certain foods as it might loosen the denture or feel like the denture has become unstable. The dental implants keep the dentures in place so that patients can lead confident lives doing and eating the foods they like without worry.

At Advance Dental Clinic we use a state of the art CT scanner, which actually measures how much bone is there for rod placement.

What kind of surgery is it?

Inserting dental implants is a simple procedure using local anaesthetic. The titanium and bone usually take between 3-6 months to bond and for the mouth to heal. Brushing your teeth can become more difficult so keep up a good oral hygiene routine at home and regularly see a dental hygienist.
