The Benefits of Dental Implants


For patients who have a missing tooth or are missing a number of teeth, dental implants offer our dentists the opportunity to provide a safe, reliable, and cosmetically-friendly long term solution that can create or restore wonderful smiles.

Tooth loss can occur as a result of a variety of dental problems. Gum disease, infection and injury are just three of the common reasons that can cause a patient to eventually suffer tooth loss.

Dentures have long been a suitable treatment option for patients with missing teeth. Partial dentures are dental appliances which can help in cases when a fewer amount of teeth are missing, whereas full dentures can suitably replace teeth in cases where full sets are missing.

Dental implants, however, are a brilliant, hassle-free permanent solution. Not only do they have fantastic durability and will last a long time if given the correct care, they also look brilliant and feel great.

If you are looking to replace missing teeth in your smile, why not visit us for an initial consultation for dental implant treatment? To arrange your appointment, do not hesitate to contact us via the website or directly by calling 01902 500 823 (Wolverhampton) today.

Ten Interesting Facts About Teeth


  1. Milk teeth begin to develop before birth, but do not appear until 6-12 months after a child is born. Most people will have lost their milk teeth by the time they get to age fourteen.
  2. A full adult set consists of thirty-two teeth, the last four of which may appear later than the others. The final teeth to come through are referred to as wisdom teeth.
  3. A set of teeth consists of four different types; incisors, canines, premolars, and molars.
  4. Incisors are the two front teeth on the top jaw, and the two front teeth on the bottom jaw.
  5. There are also four canine teeth – one on either side of your two sets of incisors. These teeth are very sharp, and used to tear foods.
  6. There are eight premolars in total, and they are located next to the canine teeth, with four on the upper jaw and four on the lower jaw. They are much larger and wider than the teeth at the front on your jaw.
  7. The molars are the eight teeth at the back of your jaw, again with four on top and four on the bottom. Located towards the rear of your mouth, these teeth play the biggest part in breaking down food.
  8. The outer coating of the tooth is a substance called enamel, and is the hardest substance present in the entire body.
  9. Inside the enamel and dentine shell is the area that controls the blood supply and nerve endings of the tooth. This highly-protected area is known as the pulp.
 The nerve endings within the pulp communicate with the brain.
  10. A substance called cementum is what secures the root of the tooth to the gum. The tooth is connected to the jawbone by periodontal fibres.
