If you are looking for a long-term way to improve your smile, then getting a dental implant Richmond could be a great option for you. This treatment is very useful if you have missing teeth, as they can be replaced by natural-looking porcelain implants.
What’s the process?
As with any dental treatment, we will first have a consultation meeting with you to discuss the treatment, and to allow us to examine your teeth to make sure you are eligible. When you have this treatment, it is important that you still have enough bone left in the problem area to hold the implant post.
If all goes well in the consultation appointment and you are eligible for the treatment, we will arrange your first surgical appointment with us. This appointment will involve us opening up your gum to expose the bone, and inserting the implant post. We will then reclose the area so the implant post is hidden, and leave it to heal for a few months. This healing process is essential as it allows the implant post to fuse to the surrounding bone, which really helps to keep your dental implant Richmond stable.
Once the post has successfully fused to your bone, you will revisit us so we can attach the crown. The crown is the piece that is fastened to the implant post through a connector and will look just like a natural tooth. This is when you will really notice the difference in the look of your mouth, and can enjoy your new smile.
Here at Sheen Dental, we take pride in ensuring that our patients teeth look and feel as good as possible. We understand that it can be nerve wracking having surgery done, and we will make sure you feel as comfortable and as welcome as possible when you arrive at our dental practice.
What are the advantages?
There are so many great benefits that come with having a dental implant Richmond, for both looks and health. Our patients walk away with healthier teeth and a happier smile after having this treatment, and your implants can last for up to 20 years with the right care, so it’s very worthwhile.
The main benefit that our patients enjoy is how natural their implants look, and a big part of this is down to the material that is used. Porcelain has many benefits when it comes to implants, such as the fact that it is stain-resistant, the colour can be easily altered and it is durable.
The ease of caring for these prosthetics is also a big reason that our patients love our dental implants. All you have to do to take care of them is the same as anyone else would with their natural teeth, by brushing and flossing regularly, and having dental check-ups.
The health benefits that come with having implants is also a huge factor, and this is due to the support it gives to the surrounding bone and teeth. When you have gaps in your teeth, this can cause the bone around it to weaken and eventually degrade, and can put pressure on the teeth around it as well. By having the implants in, it bone growth is encouraged and there is added support for the other teeth surrounding it.
