Dental Implants BerwickBerwick Dental Clinic & Surgery

At Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery, we understand the toll it can take on your life when your teeth don’t allow you to eat or speak as you’d like. Our array of solutions are designed to help you improve your oral health so that you can feel proud to show off your smile. If you’re missing teeth, dental implants are one of the most advanced solutions that mimic a natural tooth and can last for your lifetime. Available at our practice, they can have a crown, bridge or denture affixed to them, depending on your particular needs.

The Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants

A single missing tooth can affect your ability to chew the foods you’d like to or may cause you to feel like you want to hide your smile. Several missing teeth can be even more devastating. With dental implants, you can once again enjoy the full function and aesthetics of a natural smile. There are many advantages to choosing dental implants for tooth replacement:

An extremely high success rate 

Don’t damage surrounding teeth 

Easy to care for 

Can last for a lifetime

Made of biocompatible materials

What to Expect When Getting a Dental Implant

An implant is a titanium post that is implanted into your jawbone. Once we’ve determined that you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants, we can arrange for the surgery to be completed. A healing period must then be allowed to pass while the implant is integrated into the jawbone. Once it has done so, we can place a crown, bridge or denture on top of the implant, restoring your smile.

Whether you have a crown, bridge or denture will depend on your particular situation. If you’re replacing just one tooth, a crown is likely most suitable. For multiple teeth, a bridge may be best. If you seek to replace all of your teeth, you can have dentures securely attached to your dental implants.

Everyone’s dental circumstances are unique and cannot be covered with general advice – please come see one of our expereienced and friendly doctors for a consult so they can go over your particular bone quality, implant suitability and restoration options with you.
