Why not try implants?
Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is a replacement root made most commonly of titanium, which is implanted into the jaw in areas where a tooth or teeth have been lost. These then acts as a root and a replacement tooth can then be fixed to it in a similar way as a crown.
Most implants are placed under local anaesthesia similar to that used for fillings. They are inserted into the jawbone after small incisions are made in the gums. After a period of time the bone into which the implant is placed will attach to the surface of the implant.
Is it painful?
Most patients are pleasantly surprised as to how little pain is experienced after implant placement. Often none or just a couple of pain control tablets are needed on the day after the procedure.
