Implants mimic the appearance of natural teeth. If youʼre missing one or more teeth the team at Dentists of Preston are happy to discuss your options and identify whether youʼre a suitable candidate.
Natural teeth can be lost due to many reasons, but there is no reason to live without teeth. Dental implants provide a completely safe way of replacing a number of missing teeth, or all your teeth if necessary. As with any surgical procedure there are some risks, however with our expertise and knowledge we can reduce unnecessary risk.
Dental implants can last a lifetime, but depends on how well they are maintained and taken care of. A patientʼs lifestyle and dental hygiene can affect the longevity of a tooth implant, so itʼs important to discuss these factors with us.
How should I care for my dental implants?
Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants. Within the first year after getting dental implants, itʼs recommended that you regularly see your dentist to ensure no problems develop. If a tooth implant starts to feel loose or itʼs affecting your bite, you should arrange to see us.
