Press Release Summary: Non-surgical beauty treatments and the latest cosmetic teeth restoration techniques have been introduced at the Bath Spa Dentistry dental practice
Press Release Body: Bath, UK - Bath Spa Dentistry has introduced the latest dental implant techniques to dental patients in Bath. The technique uses titanium implants - tooth root shaped devices, which are inserted into the area of bone once occupied by the tooth. Bath Spa Dentistry has changed the traditional perception of a visit to the dentist over recent years by providing each patient with their own listening and viewing choices, from the latest DVD, their favourite music CD or even live Sky sport. Additionally patients can see the progress of their own treatment via an intra oral camera, whilst their treatment is being carried out. For more information visit: www.bathspadentistry.com
Dental Implants - Bath Spa Dentistry Treatments and Services
Implants have revolutionised dentistry in the last 10 years. A Swedish engineer (Per-Ingvar Branemark) pioneered them in the 1970\'s. Since the early 1980\'s they have been used extensively throughout the world to restore missing teeth. Originally implants were used exclusively to replace dentures in the lower jaw, however now they are used in situations throughout the mouth.
Dental implants are titanium; tooth root shaped devices, which are inserted into the area of bone once occupied by the tooth. Over a period of time bone fuses to the implant surface. This process is called osseointegration. Once achieved it can be considered that the implant is permanently anchored in the mouth.
Crowns, bridges or dentures can then be connected to the implant so therefore an implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth or form the basis of a complete rebuild. Depending on the individual situation it is possible to replace an extracted tooth with an implant and porcelain crown at the same visit. Or it may be necessary to wait a longer period of time.
Other treatments offered by Bath Spa Dentistry include non-surgical beauty treatments that can change a patient's face safely with Botox for frown lines, crows feet and wrinkles and for lips, wrinkles and facial contours; the latest cosmetic teeth restoration techniques can change a patient's smile through Veneers, Porcelain crowns, Composite bonding, Dental implants and Teeth whitening.
