If you are interested in exploring your gap management options in the Tamworth or Lichfield area, please do not hesitate to call us and book your free consultation today. We are a local and professional dentist in the Tamworth area that offers the gold standard in tooth replacement. Dental implants are considered the gold standard way of replacing missing teeth as they offer stability and healthy properties such as combating the affects of bone resorption (bone loss due to missing teeth). We are proud to offer our high quality treatments to the immediate areas of Tamworth which is easily accessible from Lichfield.
The easiest answer to this question is if you have lost a tooth, several teeth, or you know that some (if not all) of your teeth are failing and are likely going to fall out or require extracting. Dental implants in short, are one of the ways that it is possible to replace your missing teeth (if eligible).
Dental implants work on the principle that they are placed within the jawbone and will then fuse with your jaw to be secure and fixed in place. For the successful placement of implants, there needs to be sufficient and a good quality bone density for the implants to take. In some cases, a bone graft may be required prior to implants being placed. At the free consultation we will take an x-ray which will give us a good idea if a bone graft may be required.
If you suffer from periodontal disease then you will need to have this treated first as it is a debilitating disease that eats at the bone, meaning it would cause the bone to fade away and any implants would eventually fail. We always offer free consultations in the first instance so we can give you the information you need to make a decision on how you would like to proceed.
If you would like to identify the most suitable treatment for you, please do not hesitate to call us today and book your free consultation.
