Not only can they give you greater confidence when smiling and eating, but the implants can also help maintain your natural teeth for longer by sharing the load placed on them.
Our implants are made from biocompatible titanium and are fitted directly into the jawbone to replace the root of the tooth. Porcelain replacement teeth will then be handcrafted to match your existing teeth, either from photographs or a visit to our local technician.
It usually takes between three and six months to get your permanent porcelain replacement teeth, however we’ll ensure you’ll never be left with a gap, with temporary tooth solutions available in-between.
If you’re missing more than one tooth, implants can be placed and connected together. For example, this means three missing teeth could be joined together by just two dental implants. What’s more, there is no need to cut into adjacent teeth like when fitting a bridge.
We’re the only practice in the local area to plan every implant with a CBCT scanner. This state of the art 3D scanner allows us to quickly and precisely position each implant to ensure the procedure is as safe as possible. Sometimes when fitting implants, you may also need some gum or bone replaced. This can be performed with grafting and can all be completed in-house at Seaham Smiles.
We offer both local anaesthetic and IV (intravenous) sedation for all procedures to ensure your comfort throughout.
So if you’re ready to replace your missing teeth with something more permanent, talk to us today.
As well as direct appointments, we also accept referrals from other dental practices around the North East. If you are a local practice wanting to refer a patient to us, please see the referral section of the website.
Dr Suggett also acts as a mentor to dentists who are new to placing and restoring implants.
If you want to be considered for mentoring please get in touch using the contact us page.
