Everything you should know about dental implants in Barnsley

For most of your adult life, you may not have had problems with your teeth, but now, as you grow older, tooth loss due to decay and severe periodontal disease are fast becoming a reality.

Dental Implants in BarnsleyWhilst losing teeth is no doubt traumatic, stressful, and for some, shameful, the introduction and continuous development of artificial teeth have made living a normal life possible.

Dental implantology is a popular treatment choice for various reasons. However big or small your issue is, several different types and techniques on the market will help you regain your smile. Consult with our experts at PDC Dental Implants and restore your quality of life starting today!

The basics

The primary reason people are choosing dental implants in Barnsley and switching over from dentures is that the tooth is restored at the root using a metal post embedded into your jawbone. Over time, the post fuses with the bone during a natural process called ossification, meaning the artificial tooth becomes part of the mouth. As a result, you can eat, talk and perform your daily tasks without struggle, because the tooth functions like a real one.

Put to rest your concerns about loose dentures and broken bridges, because we securely fit the implant into your mouth. Eat the foods you like and smile widely without fear that your prosthetic teeth will crack or accidentally slip out of place at inopportune moments.

Different options with dental implantology

Regular dental implants are not for everyone. If you do not have enough jawbone, bone graft surgery might be recommended for you – which adds time to your recovery period and takes more money out of your wallet.

Zygomatic implants and All on 4 implants are more suitable procedures for you if you have experienced significant tooth and bone loss and do not want to endure further surgeries if you can help it.

Unlike conventional implants drilled into the jawbone, we anchor zygomatic implants to the cheekbone or zygoma bone. The bone’s strength, density and size results in successful implantation, therefore eliminating the need for bone grafts.

People incorrectly think that a single implant replaces a single tooth, but this is not true. If you have several missing teeth on your upper or lower jaw, All on 4 implants might be the answer to recovering your smile by embedding only four implants for an entire set of teeth. The need to undergo bone grafting is again made redundant because we replace the dental implants in Barnsley in whatever bone is available.

The healing period takes approximately six months. If you are self-conscious about your missing teeth during recovery, we can place special abutment to your implants to secure temporary, same day implants. You can walk out of our clinic with a full set of teeth with friends and family being none the wiser!

Ageing can be hard on your teeth. If a life of neglect has left you with decay beyond repair and consequently rows of missing teeth, you do not have to live with unsightly gaps. Enjoy the many conveniences of dental implants and enjoy the rest of your life unhindered by your teeth (or lack thereof).
