Rediscover Your Smile: Transforming Lives with Dental Implants

A smile is not just a set of teeth; it’s an expression of joy, confidence, and self-assurance. At Tonbridge Gentle Dental, we understand the importance of a complete and dazzling smile. Dental implants are a revolutionary solution that can transform your life by restoring your smile’s integrity and functionality. We are highly experienced in providing affordable, safe, reliable means of correcting tooth gaps and missing teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium or titanium alloy that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums. Once in place, they provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, offering a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral health and function. They are considered one of the most effective and durable options for tooth replacement available in modern dentistry.

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure at Tonbridge Gentle Dental is a carefully planned and executed process to replace missing teeth with durable, natural-looking dental implants. Here’s a step-by-step overview of what to expect:

Benefits of Dental Implants

1

Regain Your Self-Confidence

Dental implants offer more than just physical restoration; they provide a profound boost in self-esteem. By replacing missing teeth with natural-looking implants, individuals can regain confidence in their appearance and smile without hesitation.
2

Speech Improvement

Missing teeth can affect speech clarity and pronunciation. Dental implants provide stable support for prosthetic teeth, enabling clearer speech and improved communication abilities.
3

Easy to Clean

Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are fixed in place and do not require removal for cleaning. They can be cared for like natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, promoting oral hygiene and overall health.
4

Look & Feel Like Your Natural Teeth

Dental implants are meticulously designed to mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth. Made from durable materials such as porcelain or ceramic, implants blend seamlessly with existing teeth, creating a harmonious and natural-looking smile.
5

Greater Comfort in Chewing & Eating

Dental implants provide stable support for chewing and biting, allowing individuals to enjoy a diverse range of foods without discomfort or restrictions. With implants, eating becomes a pleasurable and effortless experience once again.
6

Preserve Your Jawbone & Facial Structure

Tooth loss can lead to bone deterioration and changes in facial structure over time. Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial aesthetics. By preserving bone density, implants help retain a youthful facial appearance and overall oral health for years to come.

Am I a suitable candidate for Dental Implants?

Candidates for dental implants are typically individuals who have one or more missing teeth and are in good overall health. Several factors influence candidacy for dental implants, including your oral health, goals, and unique needs. It is essential to schedule a consultation with us to determine if you are a suitable candidate. During the consultation, we will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals, and create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Oral Health

Candidates should have good oral hygiene practices and healthy gum tissue. Any existing dental issues, such as gum disease or tooth decay, may need to be addressed before implant placement.

Bone Density

Sufficient bone density in the jaw is essential to support the implant. In cases of bone loss, bone grafting procedures may be necessary to augment the jawbone.

Overall Health

Candidates should be in good overall health and free from conditions or medications that can impair the body’s ability to heal or increase the risk of complications. If you have receding gums, a thorough evaluation by our implantologist is essential to determine eligibility.

Smoking

Smoking can negatively impact the success of dental implants. Candidates who smoke may be advised to quit or reduce smoking to improve the chances of a successful outcome.

Commitment to Oral Health

Candidates must be committed to maintaining excellent oral hygiene and attending regular dental check-ups after implant placement.

Specific Dental Needs

Dental implants are versatile and can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even support full arches of dentures. Candidates with various dental needs can explore implant options.

However, in some rare cases where the implants are deemed medically necessary, the NHS may cover the cost. It's best to consult with our dentist and NHS dental services for specific eligibility criteria and options available in your area.
Your dentist should be able to give you a rough estimate about time after your first consultation. Nowadays some false teeth are fitted as the same time as implants for some cases.

In some instances it might take longer due to complexity of the case but your dentist should be able to let you know about this during your treatment.

This enables us to insert implants through a small punch hole, akin to keyhole surgery. Consequently, the treatment is virtually painless.
It's a good idea to come and see us as soon as you can. If we need to extract a tooth before the implant, it's essential to do it delicately to preserve your own bone.

Just let us know what works best for you!
