Dental implants are now recognized to be the treatment of choice in many cases to restore the gaps in our mouths from missing teeth. Dr Costello and the dental team have been providing this form of treatment now for several years and the success rate is extremely high. This type of treatment can be a life changing procedure, not only helping with eating and chewing but often helping patients to feel more confident in their appearance.
The benefits of dental implants as opposed to dentures are that they are permanently fixed in the mouth so do not move around and cause discomfort or embarrassment. Also the placement of dental implants does not involve treatment to healthy existing teeth, which can sometimes be the case in placing bridges to restore a gap.
We are also able to offer implant retained dentures which can be of huge benefit to the stability of otherwise unstable or ill fitting dentures.
If you are interested in dental implants and would like more information, please contact the surgery or ask Dr Costello at your next appointment, who will be happy to explain the procedure and suitability and benefits of dental implants for you
