Why suffer after tooth loss?

Tooth loss can be a traumatic experience, whether you have lost one tooth or more as a result of decay, disease, accident or age. It can cause concern about your appearance and inhibits how you eat. But tooth loss doesn’t have to be permanent: implants can bring you back to a satisfactory level of appearance and functionality.

Implants at bridge dental

Here at Bridge Dental we have extensive experience in implants, from single to multiple teeth and full arches. The latest CT scanning imagery is used to plan the treatment so that we can place the implants in the most optimal position. We use the most widely used implant technology and most widely researched implants made by Nobel Biocare.

How implants work

The implant process involves creating an artificial substitute for the root of a natural tooth. This is in the form of a small screw fitted into the jawbone, which fuses with the jawbone over time. A man-made tooth is then fitted firmly onto the artificial root. Implants look incredibly realistic and offer a long-term solution to tooth loss.
