Dental Implants: How to Permanently Replace Lost Teeth

Dental implants are the only way that a dentist can replace the roots of the teeth. It is the tooth roots that preserve the strength of your jaw bone. When the natural roots are missing for any significant period of time, the jaw bone will start to resorb, which will alter the fit of your dentures and can change your whole facial structure.

The Mall Stockport dental implants

We welcome new patients for dental implant consultations at The Mall Stockport. Your appointment will include the use of x-rays and CT scans to help ascertain your current level of bone density.

If you have been struggling with loose dentures for a long time and are worried you won’t have a dense enough jaw bone to support dental implants, there is no need to panic. Thanks to the skill of the implantology team at The Mall Stockport dental practice, we are able to provide bone grafting procedures that will rebuild your jaw bone prior to the placement of dental implants.

Although most people only need local anaesthetic for the placement of dental implants, at The Mall Stockport we also offer the option of treatment under conscious sedation. This is an excellent option if dental anxiety or phobia has contributed to your tooth loss, because it induces a state of deep relaxation and peace, and means you will be largely unaware of treatment. Most importantly you will experience no pain.

It takes a few months for implants to fully integrate with your jaw bone, during which time your dentist may fit temporary teeth so that you don’t have to worry about being toothless for a long time.

Once your dental implants are fully integrated with your jaw bone, you will be called back to The Mall Stockport clinic for your permanent teeth to be attached.
