Why dental implants are so popular with patients?
Dental implants provide the only reliable, permanent solution to tooth loss. They look, feel and function like normal teeth, so have both practical and cosmetic benefits. When one or more teeth are missing, the jawbone around the gap begins to shrink. This can cause a change in the shape of the face and other issues. Dental implants help to prevent facial distortion and further tooth loss, as well as restoring the patient’s confidence, smile and ability to chew.
A relatively pain-free treatment process
The treatment process is relatively pain-free and straightforward, and patients have the option to be sedated under a local anaesthetic. Following a small surgical procedure, the dental implant which is made from titanium – one of the strongest materials in the world – is skilfully screwed into the jawbone by Dr Jones. The implant stimulates and maintains the bone around it, providing a strong and stable foundation for the patient’s abutment and new dental crown.

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENTS
Below are some of the dental implant treatment options that Dr Jones can provide, from single implants to implant fixed bridges, arches and dentures.
Single dental implant
A single dental implant looks, feels and functions like a real tooth. It can last a lifetime if looked after properly. The titanium implant stimulates, maintains and integrates with the bone around it, effectively replacing the missing root. This provides a solid foundation for the porcelain crown. Another advantage of a dental implant is that unlike a bridge, the two healthy teeth either side of it do not need to be drilled down.
Multiple dental implants
Replacing missing teeth with multiple dental implants is a similar process to single dental implant treatment. Fewer implants are required and you do not necessarily require an implant to replace each tooth. If you lose three teeth, which are all next to each other, these can potentially be replaced using just two implants to fix a bridge.
Dental implant fixed bridge
A dental implant fixed bridge is the perfect treatment for people who have lost all or multiple teeth. The dental implant fixed bridge is fitted onto implants, which provides an ultra-strong foundation, giving the patient a new set of functional and aesthetically pleasing teeth.
Full dental implants
Unlike traditional dentures, full mouth dental implants or a full arch implant bridge are permanent and securely fixed onto four to 8 strong titanium implant posts. Fixed into the jawbone, the implants integrate with the patient’s body tissue like natural teeth, improving their quality of life.
