The many benefits of Dental Implants

The way your teeth look can greatly affect your smile and your confidence. Here at The Smile Centre in Liskeard, Bodmin, we understand that choosing the right treatment is an important decision. With Dental implants becoming an incredibly popular choice, we would like to inform you on the potential benefits they could bring to your life.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are a fixed alternative to removable dentures and a discreet, long term solution for replacing teeth. The dental implant itself is a titanium screw which is placed directly into your jawbone during treatment and which replaces the missing tooth root. The implant will eventually fuse with the bone itself, providing a solid foundation for a prosthetic tooth. The final step is to fit a prosthetic tooth onto the implant. This prosthetic tooth will look just like your other teeth, ensuring a completely natural-looking result.

How can Dental Implants replace missing teeth?

Those with missing teeth often suffer from damaged confidence and find themselves unable to enjoy food in the way they used to. If you feel similar, you’ll be happy to hear that dental implants are great for replacing missing teeth. Our principal dental surgeon, Chris Smirthwaite, has had many successful years of experience, and at an initial consultation Chris will ensure you receive the treatment that is best suited to your needs, and answer any questions you may have.

Are Dental Implants strong?

They are durable, meaning you will be able to eat as normal after treatment. Unlike traditional dentures, Dental Implants are fixed to the jaw, meaning they will not move whilst you eat or continue to enjoy your everyday life. Dental Implants are built to last for many years if cared for in the right way.

Do Dental Implants hurt?

Many people are nervous about visiting the dentist, and this can often restrict patients from receiving the treatment they need. All our treatments are carried out under a local anaesthetic to ensure patients are comfortable and pain free, and for very nervous patients we can also offer dental sedation. At The Smile Centre, Bodmin, we seek to provide a calm environment that helps patients feel relaxed during their visits.
