While our first and foremost priority in your dental care is looking after your teeth. Sometimes it is necessary to use dental implants.
Whether you loose teeth due to an accident or illness, we aim aim to bring back your smile using the latest in implant technology. At present Gregory uses the Zimmer Biomet system. Implants are a safe, well-established treatment. Dental implants are metal frames that are surgically positioned into the jaw beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them that match your own. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth.
To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants. How well you look after your implants - and whether you go for your regular maintenance appointments - will have the biggest impact on how long they will last.
Gregory Wootton is our resident implantologist and he will carefully assess your mouth and bone levels for suitability and discuss your needs and desires.
Our dental team will give you instructions on how to look after your implant, and help you keep a happy, healthy smile!
