Why choose dental implants in Ipswich?


Do you need to improve your smile profile? Or, maybe you want a dental solution to restore the masticatory function of your mouth. Whether your need is to restore dental function or improve dental aesthetics, there is one treatment plan that can easily accommodate both – dental implants in Ipswich.

At Ipswich Dental Surgery, we are delighted to offer high-quality dental implants in Ipswich as well as meet the highest standards in patient care. The nature of this type of dental solution makes it easy for it to fit into restorative dentistry as well as cosmetic dentistry, and it is sought after by patients who have lost natural teeth.

Treatment plans can be tailored to fit in with patients’ individual dental needs and smile goals, and this is just yet another reason why dental implants in Ipswich have become the treatment of choice for patients with missing teeth.

Why does the dental implant solution work so well?

For a missing tooth replacement treatment plan to be considered reliable, it needs to be substantially solid in the mouth, and dental implants achieve this to a remarkable degree. The key to this lies in the implant’s design, which is surprisingly straightforward.

Seeing that the goal of the tooth replacement device is to replicate the look and function of natural teeth, its design mirrors that of actual teeth. The dental implant treatment plan unfolds in two stages.

The first stage follows the surgical insertion of a metal screw-like device into the jawbone. This metal ‘root’ is left to fuse naturally in the mouth during the healing period. This natural process can take anywhere from six to eight weeks, although the exact recovery period will depend on the patient.

Once natural fusion has taken place and the metal root is firmly embedded in the jawbone, it is time for phase two. A dental crown is placed on top of the implant to provide aesthetic value and masticatory function.

Both the metal root and the dental crown on the top work together to contribute to the success of this treatment plan. The metal root is a substitute for a natural tooth root, and the dental crown stands in for the tooth that sits above the gum line.

What are the benefits of opting for dental implants?

Patients who choose dental implants to restore their dental function enjoy a long list of benefits.

Dental implants offer comparatively better comfort than a missing teeth replacement device. Once again, the solidness of its structure helps improve the comfort factor. There are no moving parts that may cause embarrassment or discomfort. The look and feel are so much like that of real teeth that you can be forgiven if you forget you actually have them in your mouth.

Dental implants are easy to care for; all it takes to ensure the longevity of your dental implants is to care for them in the same way you would your natural teeth. This means following good oral hygiene habits, visiting the dentist for bi-annual dental checkups and avoiding frowned-upon lifestyle habits like unhealthy eating and smoking.
