Lots of people have lost at least one tooth, and here at Ace Dental we understand this can be very upsetting for our patients. Dental implants in Camden can offer a long-term solution for tooth replacement. Dental implants are often regarded as being the gold standard for replacing missing teeth.
So, what are dental implants?
Dental implants are a way of replacing a tooth root using a small titanium post that is inserted directly into the jawbone. This implant integrates with the bone, providing a strong and stable support for your new replacement crown.
A special attachment is joined to the implant post and this supports the replacement crown. While single dental implants in Camden can be used to support up to three crowns, multiple dental implants can be used to support bridges and even complete dentures. This will provide results that are look natural and will also restore your mouth to full function once again.
Can I have dental implants?
Dental implants in Camden must be inserted into a certain amount of healthy jawbone. Unfortunately, bone loss can occur due to disease, or if teeth were lost quite some time ago. We can usually build up lost bone using grafts, or our implant dentists may be able to use a smaller dental implant that need less bone. When you come in for your initial consultation, our experienced implant dentists will be able to tell you if you are suitable for dental implants in Camden and can discuss the treatment options available to you.
Most of our patients with reasonable oral health will be able to have dental implants. Age is also not usually a problem as dental implants can be extremely useful for older people who struggle with loose or ill-fitting dentures.
Dental implants unfortunately may not be suitable for patients with uncontrolled diabetes or other diseases that can affect the immune system, or for heavy smokers, as these conditions can negatively impact healing and increase the chance of implant failure.Back to Blog
