Dental implants

At Terrace Dental Care in Newmarket, we are experts in replacing teeth. Using the latest dental technology we can help you achieve a beautiful, natural smile.

Why might I need an implant?

A dental implant is a fixed solution for one or more missing teeth, and can help restore both your smile and your quality of life.

An implant is made up of an artificial titanium root that is fixed to the jawbone, with a crown or bridge fitted on top. They can be made to look and feel just like natural teeth. If you are concerned about your replacement teeth looking realistic or coming loose, implants are an ideal option.

Implants also safeguard your overall dental health. Replacing missing teeth is extremely important, as missing teeth cause bone loss which can age your face, and could potentially cause adjacent teeth to become loose too.

The benefits of implants

  • Implants look and feel just like natural teeth – you shouldn’t notice any difference.
  • Implants provide permanent stability and comfort without affecting healthy teeth.
  • Implants won’t come loose or fall out.
  • Implants can last for many years if you maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Implants prevent ageing bone loss, by stimulating your bone structure and stabilising the surrounding teeth.

What types of implants are there?

There are several different types of implant available depending on your needs. Your Terrace Dental Care dentist will discuss all the options with you to find the best solution.

Single dental implant

An implant is a great choice for a single missing tooth, whether it’s visible or not, and the results can be life-changing. A single implant provides the foundation for a crown, which will be created at Terrace Dental Care to match your teeth exactly.

If you’re missing more than one tooth, there are a number of options available to you at Terrace Dental Care. In some cases a single implant can support two replacement teeth, or two implants can support a fixed bridge if you have several missing teeth. A bridge is a long-lasting, natural-looking solution which will help preserve the health of the rest of your teeth and jaw.

Same Day Teeth is a process at Terrace Dental Care where patients can have implants placed and fully functioning teeth attached in the space of one day. With the latest technological advances, it is possible to remove a tooth and place an implant immediately into the extraction socket.

If you have had missing teeth for a while then loss of bone in your jaw or bone atrophy is the body’s normal response to tooth loss, infection, gum disease of other trauma. This may mean you need some treatment before the Implant can be placed. The team here at Terrace Dental Care will advise you of this.
