With dental implants in Essex, you must understand that implants are a substitute for your natural teeth, not a direct replacement and they cannot replicate them exactly. Your teeth are precious and given to you once in your life and you can never have another set like them.
It is fair to say that dental implants in Essex will replicate and resemble natural teeth as much as possible. There are constraints that your mouth, anatomy, available bone, personal time and costs will place on your replacement teeth. Sometimes, it is not possible to give you a set of artificial teeth to perfectly match the natural teeth that you used to have. However, it is it possible to have a set of implanted teeth that function well, as well as looking and feeling good.

Do they take a long time?
To see if dental implants in Essex are for you, an assessment appointment is required. This is when x-rays will be taken and you will get the chance to ask any questions you have about the procedure. The implant placement procedure is completed under local anesthetic. After a period of healing the implant is left in place under the gum for around three to six months, to allow it to fuse to the bone. The next stage involves uncovering the top of the implant and taking a mould of your teeth, so that the new crown or bridge work can be made. This is usually fitted around two weeks later. Your dentist will then advise you on how to take care of your implants so that they will last many years.
