The ultimate permanent solution for people with missing teeth
It’s hard to exaggerate just how significant a breakthrough implant dentistry has been for people who have lost their natural teeth. Not only do dental implants offer an aesthetic appearance that is simply unbeatable, they also deliver the functionality and performance of healthy natural teeth.
Dental implants are a strength here at Upton Dental. Our practice owner, Hennie van der Merwe, has been placing and restoring implants since 2002 and knows how to achieve excellent results for our patients.
How dental implants can literally transform lives
Whether you need to replace a single tooth or many, dental implants offer the optimum combination of natural appearance and lasting performance. They can literally transform the lives of people who have not only worried about the way their teeth look, but also may have encountered discomfort when eating – or have even had to avoid some foods altogether. They offer the highest level of comfort – unlike dentures, no slipping or movement is possible, and you can care for them much as you would natural teeth.
How we place implants at Upton Dental
After careful examination and measurement, dental implants are secured into your mouth using small screw-shaped attachments made from titanium. These are gently fitted into your jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. A new tooth can then be fitted onto the implant, once it has taken hold.
Hennie always takes the utmost care to make sure his patients remain comfortable and relaxed throughout all procedures, and placing implants is certainly no exception.
Why dental implants are such an effective long-term solution to tooth loss:
- They feel and perform just like your original teeth
- They have a remarkably natural appearance, boosting self-confidence
- There’s no need to shape any other teeth to secure the implant into the mouth – unlike bridgework or some partial dentures.
- Dental implants help maintain the shape and structure of the jaw bone, preventing bone shrinkage caused by missing teeth
