People in Putney are restoring their smiles beautifully with safe dental implants

When faced with tooth loss, restoring smiles must be done as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of shifting teeth. Dr. Etienne Potgeiter of Gentle Dental Putney has a number of solutions for his patients to consider when it comes to repairing the function and appearance of the smile after trauma, extraction, or tooth loss from disease. Many patients find that restoring smiles with safe dental implants is one of the best solutions available.

Dr. Etienne Potgeiter and the team in Putney are here to help patients find a solution that works bets for their budget and their lifestyle. Our team is also committed to making sure treatments are affordable and attainable. Dental implants are often suggested as a long-term method of addressing tooth loss in a way that is both affordable and safe. These restorations provide unsurpassed efficiency compared to bridges and dentures.

Dental implants are made of titanium. These posts are placed during oral surgery into the jawbone. This is how they derive their strength and stability. Dental implants are restored over the top with crowns to act as a false tooth and help with chewing and speaking function. In some cases, they are also used in conjunction with bridges and dentures.

Dental implants have many benefits, including:
  • Longevity
  • Strength
  • Durability
  • Value
  • Beauty
  • Functionality
  • Bone stimulation
  • Ease of care
  • Stand-alone
These advantages make them one of the most popular solutions for tooth loss and one of the reasons that Dr. Etienne Potgeiter prefers to use them for patients missing one tooth within the smile.

When patients visit the practice of Gentle Dental Putney, our team will provide a thorough examination along with x-rays to determine if dental implants are appropriate. Patients must have enough jawbone to successfully place the restorations and allow them to last as long as they should—which in many cases is a lifetime! If you are interested in finding out more about tooth implants or any other restorative services in our practice, contact Dr. Etienne Potgeiter today to schedule your initial consultation visit and evaluation.
