Teeth can be lost due to decay, infection or accidents. This can lead to impaired function and poor aesthetic appearance. Dental implants are the gold standard choice for the replacement of missing teeth.
A dental implant's longevity and ability to restore normal function and appearance of teeth make them the most reliable choice when compared to alternatives.
The dental implant is placed into the jaw bone following precise planning. Following a period of integration into the jaw bone, the final crown can then be attached to it.
Dental implants can be utilised to replace single teeth, multiple teeth, dental bridges and even provide support for full dentures.
Regain your confidence
There's no doubt that losing a tooth can affect you physically and emotionally. Thankfully, at David Vaughan Dental Care we can use implant technology to replace missing teeth, enhance and rejuvenate the aesthetics of your smile, and prevent bone deterioration. We allow you to say goodbye to loose, ill-fitting dentures.
Enjoy a more youthful appearance
If teeth are lost, the supporting bone in your jaw will shrink. Placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the structure and shape of the lips and cheeks and preventing the ‘caved in' look of some older people with dentures. Dental implants have revolutionised tooth restoration.
Suitable for the majority of adults, dental implants act as a long-lasting solution for natural function. They look, feel and work just like the real thing and are a tried and tested treatment. Studies have shown that the long-term survival of implants can be as high as 90% at 20 years. This compares very favourably with conventional dental treatment.
