Dental Implants Made Simple

Dr Navdeep Singh, My Family Dental

Dr Navdeep Singh from My Family Dental is improving the oral health of his patients by giving back their confidence, thanks to dental implants that have revolutionised the field of dentistry.

Darren, a 43-year-old Sales Executive, opted for a dental implant after losing a tooth while playing football.

“After chatting with the team at My Family Dental, they offered an implant as a solution and it was the best thing I have done,” Darren says.

“I was self-conscious when talking with my clients, never smiled, and it made it difficult to chew.”

Dr Nav says a gap between teeth can cause other teeth to shift out of place, which can lead to further tooth loss and gum disease no matter how good your oral hygiene is, and dental implants are becoming a popular way to replace missing teeth.

“Unlike dentures or bridges, which rely on surrounding teeth for support, dental implants are anchored directly into the jawbone. This makes them much more stable, improving your bite and making it easier to eat and speak,” explains Dr Nav.

“They also look and feel more like natural teeth, so you can smile with confidence, and they help to deliver the same bite power which means you don’t have to miss out on eating your favourite foods.”

Dr Nav says that despite good oral hygiene, people can experience tooth loss at any stage of their life and an implant is a great solution.

“As in Darren’s case, teeth can fall out due to traumatic injuries, infections and other health concerns such as cancer treatments. The best oral hygiene will not always prevent tooth loss and an implant is a great solution,” he explains.

“Implants can be used to replace both top and bottom teeth and have a 97% success rate, are strong, durable and are easy to care for.

“Brushing twice a day and regular use of floss or an interdental brush is all the care they need.”

Darren is delighted with the results of the dental implant, and is back to playing footy (with a mouth guard!) and smiling with confidence.

“No-one would even know it’s not my tooth, it looks exactly the same as the rest,” he says.

“The procedure was comfortable and I had little time off work, I even went to a meeting later that day. The best thing is I can eat a steak again without having to cut it in to tiny pieces!”
