Dental Implants at Longborough

It is a well known fact that people are keeping their teeth for longer. ‘Old age’ used to mean losing your teeth, now nearly half of the UK population aged 85 and over are expected to retain some, if not the majority of their teeth. The team at Longborough Dental Practice are committed to helping their patients retain their own teeth and can offer a wide range of preventative and restorative treatments to help keep everyone smiling.

There are also many ways of filling a ‘gap’ now without resorting to a denture. Dental implants are one means of ensuring a confident smile. If replacing a molar tooth an implant will help to maintain a good biting surface which in itself is crucial to long term good health and well being.

However, if you are already living with a loose denture which causes you to miss out on life’s simple pleasures such as eating your favourite foods, laughing, smiling or talking in public - all is not lost.

At Longborough the dental team can offer you (or your elderly relative) mini-implants, which have revolutionised dentistry with the introduction of a minimally invasive treatment plan for denture stabilisation. Many people struggle for years when dining out with friends and the embarrassment of their loose dentures. After a simple procedure to fit mini-implants they find they can relax and enjoy their evenings. Steak is back on the menu!
