At The Mall Stockport, dental implants are our primary treatment choice for people who have lost one, several or all of their natural teeth. Unlike dentures that merely sit on the gums without interacting with them, dental implants become an integral part of the jawbone. By the end of the treatment, your new teeth will feel, look and function exactly like your natural teeth.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are made of two main parts – a small, titanium post which is surgically placed into the jawbone, and crowns, bridges or dentures that are fixed on top of it. Because they are made of titanium, which is compatible with the human body, they fuse into the jawbone and help prevent its further deterioration.
Treatment with dental implants is completed in two phases. First, our implant dentist at The Mall Stockport will surgically fix the dental implants into your jawbone. After the operation, you will have to wait for the jawbone to heal, otherwise, the dental implants will not fully incorporate into the soft tissue. Waiting time depends on many factors, but usually lasts for a few weeks. Once your gums and the jaw has fully healed, your dentist will attach the replacement teeth to the dental implants.
At The Mall Stockport, we employ a digital implantology system that makes full use of advanced digital planning software, enabling our dentists to plan your dental implants into your jawbone before the surgery. The system takes into account of all the factors that contribute towards the success of your dental implants, such as the best position in your mouth and the quality of your jawbone.
