Dental Implants: How Your Dentist Can Permanently Replace Missing Teeth

How implants work

Dental implants are small titanium screws that your dentist carefully places in your jaw bone in a minor surgical procedure. They replace the root portion of a missing tooth. Crowns, dentures or bridges are then attached on top to replace the visible part.

Because titanium is highly compatible with the human body, dental implants promote bone growth. This helps to address the problem of bone resorbtion that occurs when teeth are lost.

At our Stockport dental practice, our skilled implant dentists use the latest advanced digital implantology planning software to precisely plan and place your implants, whether you need just one tooth to be replaced or all of your teeth replaced.

The technology we use here in Stockport enables your dentist to place your implants in the best position from a biological, prosthetic and aesthetic point of view. The computer-guided surgery ensures that your implants are put in exactly the right place for bone growth to occur around them, while avoiding nerves and other vital structures.

If you are interested in restoring your smile with dental implants, you should book a consultation with an implant dentist here at The Mall Stockport. They will carefully examine your mouth and will assess if implants are the best treatment for you.

Patients who have been wearing traditional, unsecured dentures for a considerable period may need some additional work to rebuild lost bone before dental implants can be placed. We offer bone grafts here at our Stockport practice – your dentist will use x-rays and scans to check your bone density prior to drawing up a treatment plan.
