SW London dentists offer implants as an alternative to bridges and dentures

Dental implants are becoming a very popular solution for patients in the SW London area looking to restore the beauty and function of their smiles. Dental implants are titanium restorations that are used for replacing missing teeth in a few different ways. Not only can they be restored with a dental crown to replace a single tooth, but they may also be used to hold dental bridges in place or to stabilize full cosmetic dentures. These versatile restorations should never be overlooked as a way of repairing the smile’s aesthetics and health.

Dr. Etienne Potgieter of Gentle Dental Putney is an implant dentist who can help patients decide the best way to repair their smile after tooth loss. Tooth loss should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid further problems such as shifting natural teeth, causing gaps between them that can only be addressed with orthodontia. Missing teeth can also greatly affect the aesthetics of the smile, the function, and the ability for patients to effectively speak and chew.

There are many solutions available for patients with tooth loss, including implants, dentures, and bridges. Choosing the one best for a specific patient requires a dentist to look at the bigger picture. Dr. Etienne Potgieter does not have a “one size fits all” solution for patients who are faced with tooth loss. Instead, he works closely with individuals to look at their unique situation, speak to them about their desires, and develop a treatment plan best suited for their budget. He also has to perform a thorough evaluation including x-rays to check for bone underneath the gum line to determine if a patient can successfully have dental implants placed.

Dr. Etienne Potgieter encourages patients to take the time to learn about restorations including bridges, dentures, and implants to find the one that can restore their smile’s appearance and function.
