Implantologist – Dr Afshin Khalessi, GDC No. 71402
DENTAL IMPLANTS ARE A MODERN WAY OF REPLACING A MISSING TOOTH USING A FALSE TOOTH ‘ROOT’ MADE OF TITANIUM METAL, WHICH IS INSERTED INTO THE JAWBONE.
This will support a replacement tooth usually made of dental porcelain. It is also possible to replace several missing teeth, supporting them on a suitable number of implants, and sometimes loose removable dentures can be stabilised by clipping them onto two or more attachments supported by implants.
Implants are not suitable for everyone. Sometimes there is insufficient jaw bone in the right place. A full assessment and detailed planning is required to ensure that the greatest benefit is obtained from this exciting and continually evolving technology.
There are frequently several options for the replacement of a missing tooth, of which implant treatment is one. We can discuss all options to ensure that you choose what is right for you. And whether you come to us directly or by referral from your own dentist, you can be sure you’ll always receive the very highest standards. of personal attention and professional care.
