Due to improved techniques and advances in the materials used, dental implants have become a sought-after solution for people who suffer with missing teeth. At Bristol Dental Specialists we provide the full range of Restorative Dentistry services including teeth replacement solutions. Our Restorative Specialist Adrian Watts uses dental implants to support teeth replacement options such as dentures, bridges, or crowns. We are fixing smiles and restoring confidence for patients who need replacement teeth.
Traditional dentures are no longer the only option to replace missing teeth and are sometimes thought of as ‘old fashioned’ and cumbersome. As dentures are not fixed to your jaw (like your own teeth) they can slip and come loose when talking or eating. Other than using a high-quality denture adhesive there is little else we can do to make traditional dentures more stable or reliable.
Dental implants act like artificial tooth roots, the implant itself is a small, strong post which is placed directly into your jaw and will hold dentures, bridges, or crowns securely in place. A dental implant can replace one tooth, or several implants can support a full set of dentures so that they stay secure all day long.
It’s not only decay or advancing in years that can lead to missing teeth, a simple accident like a slip in the shower can leave a tooth permanently damaged. Facing the world with a gap in your smile can have a huge impact on your life whatever your age.
Although artificial, a dental implant will function just like a natural tooth, allowing you to speak and eat normally. With dental implants you can enjoy a wider range of foods than traditional dentures, so a juicy steak or a crunchy apple is back on the menu!
Bristol Dental Specialists accept referrals for Restorative Dentistry from direct patients and referring dentists in Bristol and the South West. Our online referral forms are safe and secure or you can simply request a referral pack, referral forms can be returned to us via email or post. We also offer a free initial video consultation so that we can assess patient’s needs before they visit the practice personally.
As dental implant treatment is unique to each patient the costs vary depending on how many implants are needed and whether any prior treatment is needed (such as a bone graft). We want to make dental implant treatment an option for everyone and to help with this we offer a range of interest-free and interest-bearing finance plans.
