All I want for Xmas is my two front teeth

Dental Implants to replace lost teeth

Whilst I appreciate that this song is written from a child’s perspective it shows how our smile is something we want to look great. Many adults lose their front teeth through accidents or disease, the usual option being a front denture. However, over the last 15-20 years, the increase in dental implant technology has meant that many of us can have a permanent replacement to lost teeth.

A dental implant is a bit like a titanium root that is placed in your jaw. Provided there is enough healthy jaw bone, a dental implant can be placed pretty much anywhere to support a crown or bridge. If there is not enough healthy jaw bone, at Keppel Advanced Dentistry in Sutton, Surrey, our specialist surgeon, Dr Carl Manhem can help build up the jaw bone to an ideal level for dental implants to fit snuggly and securely.

An advantage of dental implants is that they are a permanent solution if looked after properly. The bone and gum around your dental implant has something to cling onto meaning it is more secure than any conventional restoration.

Keppel Advanced Dentistry in Sutton, Surrey has been helping their patients replace their lost teeth for over 25 years. If you would like your two front teeth, its a bit late for Xmas now, replaced with something beautiful and permanent then call us today for a consultation.

Best wishes
