What You Need to Know About Dental Implants
Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017
Dental implants are the ideal way to restore your smile and to provide improved dental health. They are a great solution for missing teeth, and are a much more sturdy and long-lasting solution than traditional dentures or bridges.
They can be used to replace one or two teeth, or more, and at The Berkeley Clinic we are able to completely tailor our treatment to each individual patient. Dental implants take into account the unique shape and dimensions of each and every mouth, to create a smile that is subtle and natural.
The procedure will take place under local anaesthetic, so that it is completely painless and stress-free. The dental implants are formed by inserting an artificial root carefully and precisely into the jaw bone. Once it has healed and fused with the jaw, artificial teeth can be secured to the implant to create a beautiful, even, and secure smile.
Some patients may only need one implant, while others may need two or more; in cases where a larger set of dentures is needed, several implants can be used to hold them in place to make eating and drinking easier.
Many people may feel nervous about having dental implants, but The Berkeley Clinic’s friendly team are experienced with anxious patients and will help you to feel calm and relaxed throughout your treatment.
The main benefit of dental implants is that they are tailored to each individual, and will create a smile that is aesthetically pleasing as well as practical and functional. Our dental implants are made from durable titanium, meaning that if they are placed well and properly maintained, 95% of dental implants will last for many years without needing further work or replacement. The titanium implants also make existing teeth stronger, helping to increase their longevity.
Each implant can be adjusted, and the replacement teeth can be coloured to match your existing teeth, so that they sit cohesively alongside each other. From dazzling white to more understated shades, your teeth will look completely natural.
Dental implants also help to benefit overall oral health. Because they are permanent, they can be cleaned and flossed just like normal teeth.
Traditional dentures can be cumbersome, high-maintenance and may restrict the diet of the person wearing them. They can make chewing difficult, so that patients may be restricted to soft and liquidised foods. Dental implants fully restore the ability to chew and enjoy a variety of foods; so while looking great is a benefit of dental implants, many patients are even more pleased about the way they can expand their diet.
They also help to manage bone loss and facial sagging, which are common issues for wearers of traditional dentures. Solving facial sagging quickly enables patients to look more youthful, with a replenished appearance.

Which is Best: Dentures or Dental Implants?
Thursday, March 31st, 2016
When we lose teeth, it can have a very negative impact on our own self-esteem. We are all reliant upon our mouths for talking day to day, and as our faces are a focus of much of other people’s attention, we are very much interested in being able to keep ourselves looking at our best. Smiling is natural, and we love to smile, but if something were to happen to our teeth to negatively impact on our smiles, we could suffer from the sudden loss of self-esteem that is common among those with tooth loss.

Top 8 Benefits of Dental Implants
Tuesday, January 12th, 2016
Before the invention of dental implants people with missing, decaying or badly damaged teeth had only two dental treatment options – dental bridges and dentures. Today dental implants are a popular dental treatment all over the world used to replace missing or decaying teeth. During the dental implant fitting prosthetic implants are carefully fixed in the jaw bone of the patient. They are durable and indistinguishable from the natural teeth which makes them a preferred dental treatment for many.
