It wasn’t too long ago that the only solution for teeth that needed replacing was a set of removable dentures but now, thanks to advances in modern dentistry, we can use dental implants that fix in your jawbone to recreate a great smile and restore function – and look like natural teeth.
Dental implants are an effective substitute for the root portions of missing teeth and, as a biocompatible material, will gently fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration.
Placing a dental implant is a surgical procedure, so we will discuss what’s involved as well alternatives, the potential risks and how best to look after your new smile.
An investment in recreating a healthy smile in this way is a sound one — and dental implants can make a difference not only to our smile but also to your overall health, your comfort and confidence.
In fact, dental implants can improve the quality of our life on every level and the cosmetic transformation is just one of the benefits.
They are particularly suited to people affected by periodontal disease or anyone who has had an injury to the mouth. They offer a permanent solution for the treatment of infected teeth and are a more aesthetically pleasing — and more comfortable — solution than dentures.
Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth to hold a fixed bridge, or they can be used to secure full or partial dentures.
They can replace teeth lost due to disease or that may have been knocked out due to trauma.
Missing teeth should always be replaced, otherwise remaining teeth may move, causing your bite to collapse.
