Access To Dental Implants in Shotgate, Essex

Finding implants and other cosmetic dental treatments in rural areas.

Those who live in cities, and most large towns will now have relatively easy access to a dentist who provides cosmetic treatments. Whilst this was once a rarity; with the increase in popularity of treatments such as teeth whitening and veneers, more and more people are looking to have these procedures done in order to create a better smile.

Whilst the above two procedures are relatively straightforward to perform though, some other procedures take many extra years of training and are less widely accessible. This certainly applies to dental implants.


If we take a village local to us; Shotgate, as an example; as far as we are aware, there are no dentists in this village who offer dental implants to their patients at present. The good news though is that, due to its locality, patients can easily access this procedure with just a short trip to Wickford to the Cygnet Dental Practice, Essex. Our dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Most patients are, whilst others may need a prior bone graft. Our experienced implant dentist is then able to place your implants at a nearby specialist practice. Once placed, we will continue to monitor the implant and offer advice as needed.

Why bother?

You may ask, why bother with dental implants when dentures can be used? It is true that some patients do prefer dentures, but, for many people, they lack stability and can feel uncomfortable and make eating more tricky. Although dental implant placement is an invasive procedure, once completed and time allowed for the implants to integrate with the bone, they should be trouble free. Given regular care, they can last for a minimum of twenty years, and very often many more.

In addition to this, once fully integrated, this method of tooth replacement feels and looks natural and means that you can eat whatever you wish without fear, knowing that your implant is strong and highly stable. So, if you are looking for dental implants in Shotgate, it may mean a short trip just down the road to have this popular teeth replacement method. We are sure, however, that, once the procedure is completed, you will be delighted with the results and years of possible frustration with dentures will be avoided.

If you are interested in having dental implants placed, or wish to discuss this possibility but are unsure, why not arrange a free non clinical consultation at our Wickford dental practice where we can discuss this with you and answer any queries that you may have.
