What are dental implants?

Installing dental implants is a process in which the entire tooth is replaced with the aid of a titanium screw, that is inserted into the jawbone. This treatment is only necessary when the entire tooth has been lost or destroyed. The tooth, or fragments, and the root are removed, and replaced with a prosthetic tooth that is secured into the bone. Once the implant has been inserted, the bone will begin to grow around the implant, securing it in place for life.

Dental Implants in South YorkshireCan everyone get dental implants?

Not everyone is eligible for dental implants. This is because the implant needs a significant amount of bone to be rooted into, and if someone does not have enough bone structure to fit the implant, then they cannot have them put in, due to the risk of them further damaging the bone, and the risk of the implants being unsuccessful during use.

What are the alternatives?

There are many alternatives to a dental implant, such as the use of veneers to restructure the tooth, or a set of dentures or a bridge. These options can be considerably more affordable, as dental implants can be expensive.

Zygomatic implants

If you are looking for zygomatic implants in South Yorkshire, then PDC Dental can provide this treatment. This will provide an alternative option to dental implants with a similar form of result, a strong foundation in the jaw that will not need to be replaced.

What is a Zygomatic implant?

A zygomatic (or zygoma) implant is similar to a dental implant, however, is inserted into the cheekbone rather than the jawbone, which can provide an even stronger solution than regular dental implants. The cheekbones (zygomatic bones) are much denser than the bone in the jaw, and therefore provide a far stronger anchor to the implants. Dental implants in South Yorkshire are available thanks to PDC Dental, who will be able to provide you with a clear and detailed process on what the treatment will involve.

Overall zygomatic implants are safe and hold a 97-98% success rate. As the nature of the treatment is complex, we will take extra care of you during this treatment and be sure to dispel any anxiety you may have.

PDC Dental Implants

If you are interested in dental implants in South Yorkshire, then please contact us for a consultation, and we will be able to advise you on whether they are your best option. One of the main reasons you might be interested in zygomatic implants, could be due to being denied dental implants in the past. Zygomatic implants have been partially designed to accommodate for this, meaning that people with weaker jawbone structure (due to disease or genetic factors) can still enjoy the benefits of dental implants.
