Despite significant advances in dental technology here in the UK, 74% of all adults have at least one missing tooth or have had to undergo a tooth extraction, and a huge 6% of the adult population have no teeth whatsoever. Here at Quest Dental Care, we want to restore your confidence and the beauty of your smile by addressing missing teeth with dental implants in Ipswich.
The causes of tooth loss
Tooth loss can occur as a result of multiple reasons; however, poor oral hygiene is the leading cause. It is important that you have an excellent dental hygiene routine and that you attend dental checkups on a regular basis to make sure that you are looking after your teeth effectively and that there are no dental issues present. The majority of dental issues are asymptomatic when they first begin to develop, and by the time they present symptoms such as toothache, bleeding and sensitivity, the damage may have spread or even be irreversible.
The importance of visiting our dentist
Visiting us at Quest Dental Care on a regular basis will allow our team to detect any dental issues from the onset so that they can be treated quickly and effectively before they cause damage to surrounding teeth and gums. If you experience irreversible damage to your teeth and need to undergo a tooth extraction or your tooth becomes loose and falls out by itself, then speak to us at Quest Dental Care to find out about dental implants in Ipswich.
Similarly, if you experience tooth loss as a result of an injury that causes trauma to your mouth, then speak to us at Quest Dental Care to find out how dental implants in Ipswich can restore the aesthetics and function of your mouth.
Dental implant surgery
Dental implant surgery is an invasive and lengthy procedure; however, with permanent results that can last a lifetime, the effort is worthwhile. Speak to us at Quest Dental Care today to book an appointment with our dentist to learn more about dental implants and find out whether treatment with dental implants is right for you.
We will first put you through a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to make sure that there are no other underlying issues. If you have underlying dental problems, these will be treated by our dentist, using our extensive range of restorative dental treatments. Our dentist will examine your mouth to make sure you have enough healthy alveolar bone for the treatment to be a success. If not, you may need to undergo a bone graft, which can be carried out here at our clinic prior to the surgery or at the same time, depending on the extent of grafting necessary. After this, you will be ready for the implantation surgery, and you may need one or multiple dental implants, depending on your needs and preferences. So speak to us at Quest Dental Care today to find out what it involves and whether you are a suitable candidate.
