If you have a missing tooth or teeth, you may want to consider being fitted with dental implants in Barnsley. These advanced implants mean you can replace a lost tooth or even hold dentures firmly in place.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are small, titanium screws that fit into your jawbone in the space where the root of a natural tooth would normally go. Because they are made from titanium, the jawbone will fuse with them naturally, fixing them securely and making them feel just like a normal tooth.
Different types of dental implants in Barnsley
A dental implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or in the case of a few missing teeth, bridge implants can support a bridge. Denture implants are also an option, where loose dentures can be clipped into place over implants, making them more secure.
You can even have a whole new set of teeth in one day with All-on-4 implants. In just one visit to our practice, you can have teeth removed, implants fitted and temporary teeth fixed in place. Once the implants have fully meshed with the jawbone, the temporary teeth are replaced with a permanent bridge.
Can anyone have dental implants in Barnsley?
You do need to have a healthy jawbone for standard implants, but there are options if there is not enough bone to support the implants. Zygomatic implants can be used in the upper jaw. These are longer than standard implants, and are fixed into the cheekbone, which is stronger. In some cases, a bone graft may be required to enhance the jawbone to enable it to support dental implants.
