Dental implants are one of the most advanced treatments available in dentistry. As well as improving your smile aesthetically this treatment can also benefit your dental health. Implants have a good long term success rate and are a modern way to replace missing teeth. Dental Implants are durable, long-lasting and can look and feel like natural teeth.
The dental implant itself is a small titanium post, which replaces the root part of a missing tooth. During treatment, the implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, usually under local anaesthetic. Once the implant has fully integrated with the bone tissue, it provides a secure, stable foundation onto which a crown, bridge or denture can be attached, providing a long-term, fixed solution.
The key benefit of dental implants
The best thing about dental implants is that they will improve your appearance and function, and give you back your confidence. And because they’re so comfortable and natural-looking, they will look and feel like your own teeth. If you take good care of them, your new teeth could last you a lifetime.
Here at Savernake Dental in Marlborough, we accept referrals for patients requiring a dental implants procedure from dentists and GPs throughout the area and beyond.
Isobel joined our practice in 2014 and we have enjoyed seeing her for regular check-ups since.
Isobel had a retained baby tooth as the permanent adult tooth had not formed. We closely monitored the baby tooth and discussed treatment options on several occasions for a replacement if it was to start to become mobile so Isobel would know what to expect.
Eventually, the baby tooth started to loosen, a treatment plan was finalised with our dentist Karan Ghataaura. This included the extraction of the tooth and an immediate temporary replacement. Isobel also wanted to explore the implant option for a more permanent solution and attended a consultation with our specialist Alastair Hetherington.
After the treatment and procedure were discussed together the planning of appointments was carried out.
Isobel went ahead with the implant; treatment was completed, and this lovely lady is thrilled with the results now smiling with confidence again.
“The practice is modern, convenient, efficient and very friendly… almost like visiting a very organised friend, if you exclude the dental procedure.“
“At the moment, I’m going through the procedure of having a tooth implant, front tooth. I had several options, but I chose that particular procedure because I’m going to be a grandfather for the first time in August and I’d like to have a million dollar smile if possible. Therefore, that’s why I went for a tooth implant, it’s expensive, but it’s worth it I feel. And everything was explained beforehand, I had sheets of paper via email from Steve, the actual dentist who’s carrying out the procedure, explaining everything, and I had no real issues. And treatment started January this year, and I’m nearly there, it’s nearly done, so all good.
Steve is a great guy, a really nice guy, we seemed to hit it off right away, I’m just relaxed and comfortable. If I want to put my hand up because it’s too much he’ll stop, or he’ll stop anyway and ask me, “Is everything okay?” And I’m engrossed in my music, and I just feel relaxed and comfortable around him. He’s really good, very professional.
Savernake is absolutely superb, it’s clean, it’s friendly, very professional, everything’s explained. They’re quite jolly – quite humorous, I have quite a good banter with Steve, my dentist. And yes, I’m very happy, I’m glad I chose them.”
