If you lose a tooth or a number of teeth, you may find that you encounter problems with eating and speaking, as well as noticing major changes to the look of your smile. Thankfully, if you lose a tooth, it is not the end of the world and we offer some innovative tooth replacement methods, including dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium rods, which are shaped like screws; they are fitted into sockets in the jawbone to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The aim of the implant is to perform the functions of a natural tooth root. Dental implants are made from titanium and this allows them to integrate fully into the jaw bone; once the implant has integrated, it can then be attached to a new restoration to restore function to the mouth and give you a healthy looking, attractive smile. Dental implants are compatible with dental bridges, dentures and single crowns.
If you have missing teeth, this undoubtedly impacts on the aesthetic of your smile; gaps tend to look unsightly and unhealthy and dental implants can help to enhance your smile, as well as your confidence. Once the implant is attached to a new restoration, your new tooth or teeth will look completely natural and you will be able to speak and eat without feeling self-conscious.
Dental implants are a really impressive treatment and they have a host of benefits for patients of all ages; they are versatile and can support a wide range of restorations and they provide unrivalled levels of anchorage, so there is no danger of the restoration coming loose. Implants integrate into the jaw bone without causing any irritation to the gums and they can actually help to reduce bone loss, which tends to be fairly common among older people. Perhaps the best thing about dental implants, aside from enabling people with lose teeth to enjoy a beautiful new smile, is their durability; they are designed to last a lifetime and represent an excellent long-term investment.
