A patient came to see us at Time Dental with loose teeth. He had not been to see a dentist in eight years as he had a bad experience where he could feel the treatment being carried out. He was now concerned that he would lose his teeth.
On further discussion of why he had not been to see a dentist, the local anaesthetic that was used by his previous dentist had not worked. So we assured him that any treatment that was to be carried out we would make sure he was anaesthetised and we would test the tooth being treated before we started.
On examination he had advanced gum disease on specific teeth, and unfortunately some of these teeth could not be saved. Gum disease results in the boney support being destroyed making the tooth loose. But its not all and news. Even though he had lost his natural tooth, missing teeth can still be replaced.
The gold standard being dental implants. Once his gum disease is under control and stabilised, dental implants can be inserted to replace the missing teeth and restore his bite.
Dental implants are titanium roots that replace a tooth root. The implant then holds a post (abutment) which in turns holds a crown.
Time Dental provides this service to patients not only in the Fleet, Farnborough, Guildford, Alton and Godalming areas but also surrounding areas in Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire.
