In Leicester, dental implants are modern dentistry’s answer to the tragi-comedy of dentures. This next generation of artificial teeth technology solves all those denture problems so-beloved by British comedy shows: teeth moving around in the mouth, spending the night in a glass of water, and, falling out at the most inopportune moments. All entertaining to watch, but embarrassing if those dentures are your dentures.
So thank goodness for dental implants in Leicester, which are different from false teeth in that they are permanently fixed into the jaw bone. At Ralston Dental and Cosmetic Clinic in Leicester, dental implants and other treatments are carried out by clinic-owner Duncan Ralston. Duncan has 30 years of practical experience in dentistry, as well as top-class training and cutting-edge equipment.
If you are thinking about having dental implants in Leicester, then the first step is to come and see Duncan, our cosmetic dentist, for a consultation to find out if dental implants are suitable for you. You will receive a written treatment plan for the dental implants in Leicester, and if you decide to go ahead, you will enter a two-stage process. During the first stage, Duncan uses his cosmetic dentistry skills to cut into your gums and precision-sculpt a new socket in your jaw where your missing tooth root once was. He will then fix a dental implant into this. Dental implants are very small metal screws, often made from titanium, that are permanently screwed into the bone where the root of your tooth used to be. Once the dental implants are in place, you will need to wait a few weeks for them to settle in. The bone tissue and new blood vessels will start to grow around the dental implants, meshing with them, and permanently anchoring them in place.
The second stage is when Duncan fixes new artificial teeth that have been custom-made to blend perfectly with your natural teeth. You can have single teeth fitted, or a permanent bridge if you have a few teeth missing. And you can even have dental implants to hold a full set of teeth, upper and lower, in place. The choice is yours at Ralston Dental and Cosmetic Clinic.
