Dental Implants in Reading: A Solution for Missing Teeth

Each year, more people choose to enhance their smile by replacing missing or decaying teeth with Dental Implants. Patients struggling with the loss of their teeth may feel more self-confident after choosing to have their teeth replaced with Dental Implants. Also, patients may have a restored ability to eat and speak naturally. Dental Implants are an exciting option for all ages and most situations, giving patients a lifetime of confidence in their appearance. Dental Implants are prosthetic teeth embedded into the jawbone with a small titanium screw, which serves as a high-tech “root” for the new prosthetic teeth. Implants become integrated into the jawbone and are a compatible foundation to secure single-tooth Crowns, Dentures, or Bridges.

At The Gallery Dental Centre in Reading, our experienced and skilled team use the highest quality materials and surgical equipment available. After an examination of your mouth and jawbone, they will select the most appropriate implant system for your situation.

During the consultation, we assess the suitability of Implants using x-rays and possibly a CT scan. If you are a candidate for Implants, we schedule an appointment for a titanium screw to be embedded into your jawbone. After several months, the tooth will be attached to the titanium screw.

Why Choose Dental Implants in Reading?

Dental implants are the right choice if you are looking to replace one or more missing teeth. Our dental implants use high-end materials, and surgical equipment to restore the fullness and authenticity of your smile. Dental implants in Reading have the immense benefit of looking and feeling just like the real thing. Sure, you’ll know that’s not your real tooth, but only for the first couple of days wearing it. After that, you will grow used to it and, seeing yourself smile fully once again, will in time forget you’re wearing an implant.

Dental implants have a host of benefits, which is what makes them one of the most popular services we offer here, at The Gallery Dental in Reading.

  • Natural look – when people see you smile, they won’t be able to tell it’s an implant. This is important because the appearance of our teeth is closely related to our overall levels of confidence. So dental implants in Reading can actually work to restore dwindling self-confidence.
  • Improve dental health – the more gaps in your smile, the more difficult biting and chewing is made. In time, this can lead to other dental concerns. Well, a dental implant can change that, because it lends your mouth the force of a full set of teeth.
  • No damage to your other teeth – unlike other missing teeth solutions (like dentures or bridges), a dental implant has no connection to your remaining teeth. It will not touch or rely on them, and so there’s no risk of damaging your other teeth.
  • Fight bone loss – unfortunately, when a tooth falls out, the respective bone begins shrinking, since it no longer has something to support. Naturally, a dental implant works to change that, and prevents bone loss (which can give your face that caved-in appearance).
  • Fixed tooth – our dental implants in Reading are fixed inside your mouth, meaning you won’t need to remove them, as you would a set of dentures. This makes your life easier, but also improves the durability of your implant.

Single Tooth Implant

Dental Implants can be added as a single tooth implant for patients who would like a gap filled. Implants blend in with surrounding teeth and function as a normal tooth. They are typically long-lasting and do not require any additional treatment to surrounding teeth, making them a preferred option over Bridges.

Implant Retained Dentures

Patients who have lost a number of teeth in a row may choose implant retained dentures. By holding the denture in place with the Implants, dentures are more securely attached and less likely to slip or rub against the gums. Just like traditional dentures, implant retained dentures can be removed for cleaning.
The procedure for adding implant retained dentures involves inserting Dental Implants into the jawbone, which will act as a future foundation for the dentures. After a period of healing, new dentures will be fitted. Temporary dentures will be provided during the time between your procedure and when you are ready for your new dentures.

Bone Grafts

Our surgeon can also replace bone lost by a previous tooth extraction. These procedures range from Bone Grafts to sinus lift procedures.
Restore your smile, confidence, and health with Dental Implants.

How do dental implants work?

First of all, you will need to schedule an appointment at The Gallery Dental in Reading. Here, a dental professional will assess the situation, and determine whether or not dental implants are a good option for you.

Don’t worry – the dental implant process is practically pain-free and very quick, so you don’t have to fret about long recovery or painful surgery.

Of course, you’ll also have to come in for the occasional check-up with one of our certified professionals.

What maintenance is required?

Like natural teeth, implants need to be taken care of, and they need to be checked out regularly to make sure they last as long as possible. Implants should be cared for in much the same way as natural teeth, but you should pay extra attention to the places where the implants are placed. They will stay healthy if they brush their teeth twice a day, floss, and go to regular hygiene appointments. It is very important to check the health of the bone and gums around an implant at least once a year.

A dentist might tell you that since all dental implants are made of titanium, they are the same. Even though most dental implants are made of titanium, the standards for making them can vary a lot. Many scientific and clinical studies back up the products made by Dentsply. They are used by many of the best implant providers all over the world.

How do you know how many implants you will require?

Each case is different when it comes to how many implants are needed to replace the missing teeth. If the surgeon can only place implants that are a certain length, then more implants will be needed. How much bone you have determines how long the implants will be. The final restoration and the number of teeth that need to be replaced also affect how many implants are needed.
