Dental Implants – Tooth Repair
These photos are of a patient treated at Manchester Dental.
This patient attended the dental practice after a fall. She had tripped and broke her front tooth. The tooth could not be saved and needed removing. After discussing the various options to replace the tooth this particular patient opted to have an implant.
Dental Implants are the best option when it comes to replacing missing teeth. The implant is placed into the jaw where it binds to the bone, and replicates a natural tooth.
The process of placing the dental implant is quite straight forward, it is done while awake and all we have to do is numb the gum. The whole process is not much different to having a tooth taken out. Everyone we have carried out the procedure on has said that it was surprisingly easy and painless. Once the implant is ready then the tooth can be placed on it. The tooth is fixed and it is attached to the implant. It does not need to be removed.
Dental Implants are a great option for missing teeth. They can be used to replace single missing teeth (as in the photos), many teeth, or even all teeth. They can even be used to stabilise loose dentures where they “lock” the dentures into place so that they don’t move.
