Did you know the first set of false teeth were discovered in the 8th century BC?
Thankfully, things have a changed a lot since then and the options available to patients have too. In most cases, dental implants are the perfect way to replace missing teeth in this modern world. They are usually made of titanium and fit in to the jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth: with the implant firmly in place, we fit natural - looking porcelain teeth on to it, or use the implants to stabilise beautiful looking, functional dentures.
Dental implants can be much better than alternative to traditional dentures or bridges for the following reasons:
They are fixed in place and feel like a natural tooth;
They look and function like a natural tooth allowing you to eat almost anything you like;
Work is only required on the replacement tooth and not on the neighbouring teeth;
They help maintain the bone in the jaw.
We are one of only a handful of practices in the Fylde area who have Mr Shakeel Akhtar placing our implants. Mr Akhtar joins us with a wealth of experience of placing implants. and working as a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at Preston Hospital.
