Tooth replacement replicating nature, dental implants

Losing a tooth can not only cause distress, but it can also be the start of a number of future dental complications. Poor dental hygiene is one of the most common causes of tooth loss, a simple regular routine oral hygiene programme can increase tooth retention. Accidents happen and unfortunately can sometimes result in a tooth being knocked out of your mouth. At Sheen Dental Implants we have been able to replace lost teeth for thousands of patients using dental implants Richmond. The treatment is based on the concept that your teeth are naturally fixed into your jawbone and that this method provides the most stable platform for your prosthetic tooth.


More than a false tooth

Dental implants Richmond provide far more than just a replacement of your lost tooth. When you lose a tooth your body shuts off the nutrient supply to the area where your lost tooth used to be. This starts a process of jaw bone deterioration called atrophy which can lead to osteonecrosis which is the gradual death of your jawbone tissue. If left untreated, your remaining teeth can be lost and your facial features can be affected by giving your face a sunken look. If you have an implant the artificial root will cause your body to recognise that it needs to send nutrients to that area again which results in jawbone regeneration and the density increasing.

Highly experienced team

At Sheen Dental Implants we have a vastly experienced and highly qualified team of implantologists who have placed over fifteen thousand dental implants Richmond over more than two decades. You can, therefore, be confident that you are receiving the best treatment available.

Initial fact finding consultation

Your initial consultation is an opportunity for you to understand what an implant procedure can do for you. It also allows us to get to understand you as a person, your concerns and your dental aspirations. Dental science and technology have helped to develop the implant procedure, techniques and equipment to the stage where more and more patients are becoming eligible. Innovative bone grafting techniques have become minimally invasive with improved results and time duration. We will need a comprehensive dental and medical history including any previous or current medications. A detailed examination of your oral cavity will follow and we may need to take X-rays, digital pictures and impressions. This will allow us to assess your suitability for implant treatment. We encourage patients to be inquisitive and to ask questions so that you fully understand what the procedure entails. If you are a nervous patient we will also need to discuss the type of sedation that will suit you best.

Your personal plan

Once it has been agreed to proceed, we will create a treatment plan specifically for you designed around your expectations and how we can meet those expectations. We are able to replace a single tooth or up to four teeth on a single implant. For a complete mouthful of teeth or to place your dentures on a stable base we only need to place four implants. It is usual to carry out preparatory work, but in certain cases we are able to go directly to implant placement.
