Do you have a missing tooth? Or perhaps you’ve had dentures for a number of years and are looking for a permanent solution to jawbone loss, missing teeth, and the associated complications? Here are a few reasons to choose Smile Up for your dental implants treatment.
State-of-the-art 3D Digital CT Scanner at Smile Up
Smile Up is one of the few practices in the Blackheath, Lewisham, and Greenwich areas with a 3D scanner. This ground-breaking piece of kit means we can facilitate treatment planning by assessing your bone density before beginning treatment, which is not possible with a standard x-ray machine. A further advantage presented by the scanner is the fact that it yields faster results and reduces your recovery time.
IV sedation if you feel nervous about surgery
Dental implants involve surgery for which you would normally be under anaesthetic. Patients with dental phobia have the option of IV sedation, which you can read about in our recent blog.
Our team is made up of dentists with specialist knowledge of dental implants. Arie Yuffa possesses an initial fellowship in implant dentistry and foundation in implant dentistry with the International Team for Implantology. Another member of the Smile Up team with a special interest in dental implants is Esteban Moreara, who gained a diploma in implant dentistry at the European School of Rehabilitation Implants and Biomaterial in 2000.
Dental implants – the most effective answer to tooth loss
When it comes to solutions for missing teeth, dental implants are a cut above the rest. Unlike dentures, which are a removable option, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone and over a period of months, they become a permanent part of your body. Via a process known as osseointegration, treatment triggers the tissues in your jawbone to grow around the implant, giving your jawbone the support it needs to keep growing. Without dental implants, your jawbone recedes and drastically changes your facial aesthetic as well as your ability to break down food. Dental implant treatment offers up a solution to all problems associated with missing teeth, in a way that dentures cannot compete with.
