So, you have a few missing teeth and are researching implant options to build up your smile. 

But what’s the best option for you?

Dental implants are a popular choice when it comes to creating a perfect smile, but what are they, and who are they for?

The knowledge and technology we have here at Gipsy Lane Advanced Dental Care enable us to provide dental implants in Reading and the surrounding areas to a variety of patients. 

Our experts are here to tell you everything you need to know.                                    

Introduction to dental implants

Dental implants are a long-term replacement for missing teeth. 

The titanium posts are screwed into the jaw to replace the root of an absent tooth, and an implant is then placed in a socket on the jaw bone to support a crown, dental bridge, or denture – depending on what’s best for the patient. 

If you choose Gipsy Lane Advanced Dental Care for dental implants in Reading, you will have a 30-minute consultation, during which our experts will create a personalised treatment plan – this will determine the length of time it takes to perform the treatments, and an accurate price. 

Benefits of dental implants 

Dental implants are a great way to achieve your dream smile. They are known for being extremely long-lasting, making them a cost-effective solution when it comes to cosmetic dental treatments. 

They are easy to look after, help you protect your surrounding teeth and bone, and you don’t have to worry about them moving around – giving maximum comfort and security. 

Many people with missing teeth find it difficult to eat or talk. Dental implants make this a lot easier, giving you the chance to get back to your old self. 

However, the key advantage of dental implants is that they can hugely increase a person’s confidence. Often people struggle with low self-esteem because of the way their teeth look – but with dental implants, they transform and feel comfortable in social situations once more.

Maintenance of dental implants 

We often get asked about how to look after dental implants, but it’s not too different to how you take care of your natural teeth. 

By being vigilant with brushing and flossing, you can keep your mouth clean, healthy, and free from bacteria buildup. 

In terms of lifestyle factors, it’s advised you take care when eating overly crunchy or chewy foods. While dental implants are highly secure, they are more fragile than natural ones, so do what you can to prevent dental trauma, chips, and movement. 

It’s also important you take regular dentist visits seriously, to make sure your implants are still secure and your gum tissue and bone are healthy. 

Maintaining your dental implants properly will ensure they last as long as possible. Patients have the ability to keep their implants for over 30 years with the right care. 

What makes an appropriate patient for dental implants?

It’s important to understand that dental implants are a life-changing treatment type, and can last for years if cared for properly. 

The ideal candidate is someone with a missing tooth or a few missing teeth, who has otherwise healthy teeth and gums, with an understanding of the importance of oral health and regular check-ups. 

Ensuring the implants have a solid foundation means the implants are supported and the surrounding gums and teeth are healthy.
