Dental implants are an effective tooth replacement treatment for those who have suffered any trauma, periodontal disease or severe decay, or have had their teeth extracted, knocked out or simply come loose. Dental implants are a popular choice at The Priors Dental Practice and are made from titanium and are placed into your mouth to enable sturdy support for your new tooth/teeth.
Patents considering Dental Implant Treatment must be aware that bone structure below the gums will play a deciding factor in whether they are a suitable case for this type of treatment or not. If the bone is not strong and thick enough to support the implant, the implant can fail causing infections. The suitability of your case will be discussed with you fully at your dental implant consultation.

A surgical procedure known as a bone graft can easily replace the lost bone in your mouth. The bone graft may be natural or artificial and will be discussed with you fully at your consultation. Once you have the healthy bone that is needed an implant can then be put in place. A single tooth implant may be more effective than bridges or dentures because they produce more pleasing aesthetics and are longer lasting.
