Dental Implants

At Beaufort Dental Care, we are experts in replacing teeth. Using the latest dental technology, we can help you achieve a beautiful, natural smile.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a fixed solution for one or more missing teeth and can help restore both your smile and your quality of life.

An implant is made up of an artificial titanium root that is fixed to the jaw, and an abutment, made from titanium, gold or porcelain, which fits to the implant and attaches the crown, bridge or denture fitted on top.

If you are concerned about your replacement teeth looking realistic or coming loose, dental implants are an ideal option. They are crafted to look and feel just like natural teeth.

Teeth implants also safeguard your overall dental health. Replacing missing teeth is extremely important, as missing teeth cause bone loss which can age your face and could potentially cause adjacent teeth to become loose too.

The benefits of dental implants

·         Implants look and feel just like natural teeth.

·         Implants provide permanent stability and comfort without affecting healthy teeth.

·         Implants won’t come loose or fall out.

·         Implants can last for many years if you maintain good oral hygiene.

·         Implants prevent ageing bone loss, by stimulating your bone structure and stabilising the surrounding teeth.

Types of dental implant

There are several different types of implant available, depending on your needs. You will also be able to select from a range of different materials and varying degrees of personalised crafting, offering a range of solutions from a functional replacement tooth, to a more aesthetic result to blend with your natural teeth. Your dentist will discuss all the options with you to find the best solution.

Single dental implant

A dental implant is a great choice for a single missing tooth, whether it’s visible or not, and the results can be life-changing. A single implant provides the foundation for a crown, which will be created at Beaufort Dental Care to match your teeth exactly.

Multiple dental implants

If you’re missing more than one tooth, there are a number of options available to you at Beaufort Dental Care. In some cases a single dental implant can support two replacement teeth, or two implants can support a fixed bridge if you have several missing teeth. A bridge is a long-lasting, natural-looking solution which will help preserve the health of the rest of your teeth and jaw.

Implant secured dentures

Dentures can be uncomfortable, irritating and embarrassing. With advances in Implant dentistry, Beaufort Dental Care now have many innovative techniques for denture stabilization.

Oral surgery

For dental implants to work, there must be enough bone in the jaw, which is strong enough to hold and support the implant. If this is not the case, you may need some treatment before your implant treatment can begin, such as bone augmentation or bone grafting. Following an examination, the team here at Beaufort Dental Care will discuss any treatment you may require before your implant treatment begins.
