Caring and professional clinic offering a long term solution to your missing teeth.
Dental implants are a highly effective, long lasting solution for one or more missing teeth. When your teeth are missing, dental implants provide the closest solution to your own natural teeth. Dental implants can offer a permanent alternative to dentures and bridges, as well as restoring your smile. Dental implants come with a whole host of added benefits because they appear just like real teeth. The good thing is our Bedford based dentists have the skill to carry out even the most complex dental implant treatment.
Dental Implants can improve your eating and speaking ability, help to prevent shrinkage of the jawbone and enhance facial shape. Unlike other restorations, dental implants also avoid the need for the removal of a layer of healthy tooth so existing teeth adjacent to the site of the missing tooth will remain intact.
Here at St Peter’s Studio Dental Clinic we can also provide Teeth in a Day where extensive work can be provided with all of your teeth that are not healthy can be taken out, dental implants fitted and then the bridge fitted, all in one day!
Dental Implants take on the job of replacement tooth roots as they are surgically placed in the jaw bone to provide a strong foundation for crowns or bridges. They are made from titanium as it is so well accepted by the body and will eventually fuse with your bone.
We offer extensive dental implant treatment in Bedford provided by dentists with over 20 years of experience!
The Treatment Process
- To start with, we will complete a full assessment of your general health. This will include your oral hygiene, your teeth alignment and how dense your jaw is for whether the Dental Implants can be placed.
- Once the full assessment has been completed and everything is fine, we will then begin with placing titanium posts part of the Dental Implant, within the bone under local anaesthetic.
- Upon implantation of the titanium, the bone will begin to bond with the titanium over the next few months. This is known as osseointegration of the Dental Implant
- Once the dental implant has bonded and completely healed, we are then able to fit your replacement teeth.
- Teeth in a day are also available at St Peter’s Studio Dental Clinic. If you meet the criteria, it is possible to have your tooth extracted and an implant placed and restored with a temporary crown all on the same day!
You need to make sure you stay on top of your oral hygiene with plenty of brushing and flossing so your implants and any surrounding teeth stay clean and healthy. You should also see us regularly so we can make sure your Dental Implants stay in great condition.
