Here at Sarum Dental Practice, we are offering a long-lasting solution to missing teeth. We know that a missing or broken tooth can cause a significant degree of emotional stress and can negatively affect your self-confidence, most especially in social situations. Losing a tooth can also be a traumatic experience and you may find that your work and personal life has been affected. Our Salisbury patients are now choosing to replace their missing teeth and complete their smiles with expert dental implant treatment at Sarum Dental Practice.
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a missing tooth and is made from a strong biocompatible material that is surgically inserted into the jawbone where the natural tooth root is absent. A restoration, such as a crown or denture, is then securely fitted to the top of the small titanium post, in replace of the visible tooth. The surgical aspect of this treatment is usually conducted under local anaesthetic so you should not feel any pain. Post-surgery you may feel some discomfort and swelling though this is something that over-the-counter painkillers will be able to alleviate.
Neel Shukla, our skilled Implantologist and recent recipient of the ‘Best Young Dentist South East’ award, places and restores all dental implants at our Salisbury practice and has many years of experience treating both simple and complex cases. Our implant patients agree that the outcome is well worth the treatment and with support from Neel, are now able to smile and enjoy life again with beautiful natural-looking and normally-functioning teeth.
And when it comes to caring for your dental implants, our hygienists here at Sarum Dental Practice are specially trained to help maintain the wellbeing of your implants and your overall oral health. We will also give you bespoke advice on how to properly care for your implants at home so that you can get the most out of this long-lasting treatment!
