Dental Implant Treatment Process

Tooth whitening Kendal

If you have lost a tooth, or teeth, then dental implants are a reliable and long-lasting replacement solution and are available through us at Viva Dental in Carnforth, Lancashire. Ordinary bridges and dentures can be uncomfortable or sometimes impossible for some patients, and can slip or shift in the mouth when talking or eating. Dental implants are a secure and reliable alternative that fix into the mouth with no need to alter or prep the surrounding teeth. Considering dental implants? Book an appointment to discuss what’s best for you.

There are two types of dental implants, and Viva Dental Carnforth are proud to offer:

Endosteal Dental Implants

These implants are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone to create a stable tooth base. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a second surgery is required to connect a post to the original base implant, and an artificial tooth (or teeth) is attached to the post. This can be done individually, if replacing one tooth, or as grouped on a bridge or denture for consecutive replacement.

Subperiosteal Dentures

These implants consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the tissue of the gum. The frame, which has posts already attached to it, fixes to the jawbone as the gums heal around the post protrusions. As with endosteal implants the artificial tooth, or teeth, is then mounted to the posts.

Because every person’s teeth are unique to them and their lifestyle we offer an individual consultation tailored to your needs. Here we can evaluate your specific needs and make sure we are doing what is right for you.
