Could our expert dentist in West Byfleet be doing more for your smile?
Get your smile back
Here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, our dentist in West Byfleet believes that every patient should have the ability to smile without care or embarrassment. Your smile is an invaluable tool for expressing emotion, joy and spreading happiness to everyone around you.
While we recognise that the past year hasn’t given people much to smile about, as normality gradually resumes, we’d love to stress to all our patients that we are open for business and can work wonders for both their oral health and self-esteem.
At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we’ve always been dedicated to providing our patients with a full range of dental options spanning from general resulting treatments to advanced restorative treatment such as dental implants.
Every smile is different, and as such, requires an individual treatment approach. At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we believe in treating the patient rather than the symptoms and tailoring every procedure that we carry out around the patient’s requirements.
Adopting this approach has allowed us to develop a reputation as a dentist in West Byfleet that patients can rely on to honestly listen to their needs intently and do all they can to give you something to smile about.
What are dental implants?
One of the hardest things a patient can go through daily is living with an untreated, missing tooth or teeth.
Alongside the obvious cosmetic implications of having visibly missing teeth - which can take a severe toll on a patient’s confidence or self-image - there are also several damaging oral implications that an untreated space can bring.
Those who lose their teeth assume that the only options they have for treatment are either dentures or crowns. Although these can be effective to a point, they are also not permanent solutions and often shift or move out of place over time - which can cause severe discomfort for patients.
Dental implants, however, are an alternative treatment that presently resources a lost tooth both in a functional and cosmetic sense. Our dentist in West Byfleet achieves this by a dental surgery that embeds a tooth-root into the patient’s jawbone.
This allows for a denture to be fixed in a position that will never shift as time progresses, meaning that patients can use their implant confidently, knowing it is permanently fixed in place.
What does the implant process involve?
As we believe in treating the individual here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, we always start every treatment with a consultation and examination. This is particularly important in cases involving lost or missing teeth. The patient’s gums and oral health must be up to a certain standard to effectively carry out the treatment.
These consultations also let our implant specialists understand the level of care that a patient will need.
After the initial assessment has been made, the dental implant process typically goes something like this:
A hole is surgically made into the patient jawbone within the gap that they intend to fill.
The practitioner then places a titanium-alloy socket into the hole and closes it over to heal. During this healing period that follows, the socket and bone inside the patient jaw merge.
Once the socket and jawbone are merged, the practitioner can attach a denture that will be firmly fixed into place permanently.
