At Smile 4 U, we provide dental treatment for the whole family. We aim to help you find the time in your busy schedules by offering late night appointments and weekend bookings to enable you to access the treatment you need when it suits you. We provide initial consultations for new patients during which our dentist Herne Hill can examine your teeth, gums and jaw thoroughly to identify any treatment you may need and discuss any concerns that you may have. You may be required to have x-rays to help us determine what is needed for you specifically, and together, we can agree upon a treatment plan that is right for you. For those who have missing teeth, we have a treatment that can provide teeth replacements.

Dental implants

If you haven’t heard of dental implants, then you may be interested to learn that they provide a way of enabling replacement teeth to be securely fitted to your mouth. Replacement teeth can be crowns, bridges or dentures, but they are then fixed to metal screws that can be attached to your jawbone. The result should be replacement teeth that are not going to loosen when you talk and eat.

The benefits of dental implants

Dental implants have a number of benefits, which our dentist Herne Hill here at Smile 4 U can explain in detail when they discuss this treatment with you. The first is the fact that implants can complete your smile, so you will no longer have gaps in it. While this may be aesthetically pleasing for you, it will also protect any remaining natural teeth that you may have from being overexposed to bacteria, which could otherwise lead to further dental complications if left untreated. Another benefit for some patients is that they discover they can speak more clearly as having gaps in their smile can also lead to difficulties with enunciating words properly. We want to hear you properly when you say thanks for the treatment, after all!

Another benefit of dental implants is that you won’t need to alter your diet after the implants have been fitted. You should be able to continue eating normally, which means you won’t need to eat soft foods all the time (unless you want to, of course!). Tomato soup may be healthy and nutritious, but we’re pretty sure you wouldn’t mind a steak well done from time to time! Chomp away with your dental implants!

Once you have had your meal, you will then be able to maintain your implants easily by simply brushing and flossing as normal. If you look after your implants by following your oral hygiene routine and coming to see our dentist Herne Hill for a routine dental checkup, then your implants could last a lifetime!
