Missing teeth create problems with biting, chewing and even speaking, and if the gap is visible when smiling or laughing, it can also greatly affect self-confidence. Here at Brookside Dental in Market Harborough, Dr Ravi uses the latest technology combined with expert clinical skills to provide a fixed replacment for missing teeth using high quality dental implants.

Missing teeth can also cause other hidden problems. When a tooth is extracted, the jawbone and surrounding soft tissues start to ‘resorb’ or shrink. This causes the lips and cheeks to sink inwards creating a sunken look and encouraging the formation of facial lines and wrinkles. The adjacent teeth can also move, tip and tilt into the space, creating unwanted food traps and changing the bite.

With the help of cutting edge dental technology and by continually updating his knowledge and expertise, Dr Ravi, the Principal Dentist at Brookside Dental in Market Harborough, can solve and prevent these problems using high quality dental implants. These are titanium screws which are fixed into the jaw, and a dental crown is fixed on top of the implant to provide a natural looking tooth replacement.

A dental implant allows missing teeth to be replaced with a fixed, strong, natural looking false tooth whilst protecting the adjacent teeth from damage caused by dental bridges and without needing to be removed overnight like dentures. This provides our patients with the confidence to eat, smile and laugh without a second thought.

Stages

We assess the state of your jawbone and gum where the tooth was lost.

Multiple Dental Implants

Nowadays we do not need to have 1 implant per tooth we are replacing, so if we need to replace multiple missing teeth, we can usually place fewer implants and bridge between them

Sedation

For some, having dental treatment can be a very stressful time and here at Brookside dental we understand this and offer sedation to help relax the patient and allow them to complete their dental treatment.

Bone Graft

After various checks and scans it might become evident that you do not have enough bone in the right areas to support dental implants.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation.
