Dental bridges and dentures are all very well, but they need replacing and adjusting. With dental implants, we are able to offer you a permanent solution for missing teeth, saving you time and hassle and enabling you to enjoy a host of benefits and a beautiful smile. If you have missing teeth, we highly recommend taking a look into dental implants; this amazing treatment has taken the world by storm and all the plaudits are entirely justified.
Missing teeth can be problematic for a number of reasons and we strongly recommend replacing them. There are various treatments available, but dental implants are the only permanent solution; bridges tend to last around 10-15 years, while dentures need constantly adjusting because the shape of the mouth is constantly changing.
Implants are small titanium appliances, which are placed inside openings in the jaw bone to act as a substitute for the missing tooth root. Titanium is a biocompatible material and this enables the implant to actually integrate into the bone; this means that the new restoration has the same degree of stability as a natural tooth.
One of the selling points of dental implants is their versatility. Implants are compatible with dental bridges, dentures and single crowns and this means that they are an option for many people with missing teeth, whether they have one missing tooth or a number of lost teeth.
Implants are suitable for most people but there may be circumstances when they are not the best option. If you are a very heavy smoker, for example, or you have a condition, which affects your bone density, such as osteoporosis, there may be other options, which are more suitable. In cases where there is insufficient bone mass in the jaw to support an implant, it may be possible to use mini implants or to carry out a bone grafting procedure.
