If you’re living with missing teeth, we sympathise with the daily struggles you may be facing. For people with an incomplete smile, ordinary tasks such as eating hard foods and confident pronunciation can become difficult. Loose dentures and inconvenient adhesives may also add to these frustrations, being uncomfortable and even painful for some. Fortunately, the dental professionals at Sarum Dental Practice are available to discuss a more permanent and life-changing solution in the form of skilfully placed and perfectly functioning dental implants.
Dental Implants in Salisbury
Dental implants work by placing a small titanium post directly into the jawbone to which a crown, bridge or denture can be fitted securely. This procedure is conducted under local anaesthetic and essentially works to replace the root of your missing tooth providing a stable foundation for the dental prosthesis.
The benefits of dental implants are numerous and can help with the following:
- Improving the shape of your face towards a more youthful look
- Broadening your smile if your back teeth are missing
- Preventing opposing teeth from moving into toothless gaps
- Restoring natural chewing function
- Improving enunciation
- Fixing unwanted gaps in your dentition
- Replacing and preventing gum irritation from ill-fitting dentures
- Eliminating the need for messy and inconvenient denture adhesives
- Boosting your self-esteem
CBCT Scanning and Dental Implant Placement
The implantologist at Sarum Dental Practice, Dr Neel Shukla, has many years of experience placing and restoring simple and complex implant cases, and was recently awarded the ‘Best Young Dentist South East’ Award! Neel’s skilful expertise is complemented by our high-tech CBCT scanning facilities which allow for very accurate implant treatment planning, surgical execution and follow-up examination.
CBCT scanning offers many benefits to our implant patients. The heightened precision of this scanner means that we can measure every angle of your jawbone and dentition allowing us to virtually map your implant placement! The scan itself is a pain-free and comfortable experience with no need to lie-down as the cone beam system automatically rotates around your jaw. The best part is that you’ll be able to see what your dentist sees so you’ll be better informed and more confident in your treatment.
