DENTAL IMPLANTS - A LIFE LONG INVESTMENT
At Union Street Dental Care we are committed to providing our patients with the latest technologies integral to modern cosmetic dentistry. In collaboration with our colleagues at Care Dental in Crieff, we can place dental implants to help restore your smile and function.
Periodontal disease is one of the most common causes of tooth loss. Once your smile diminishes your confidence and self-esteem are affected. The success or failure of dental implant surgery is dependent on good strong healthy teeth, gums and jaw bone. To be a good candidate for dental implants you need to be highly motivated to improve and maintain healthy teeth and gums to support the dental implant.
Implants are considered the 'gold standard' for replacement of missing teeth as they are fixed in place and don’t require any preparation of adjacent teeth. They usually involve having a titanium implant placed into the gum with a crown placed on top. Implants can also be used as 'anchors' to stabilise dentures and prevent them moving around where this option for tooth replacement is appropriate.
