Dental implants have fast become a revelation of modern dentistry. In the past, if you lost a tooth or had a tooth extracted, you either lived with a gap or had a bridge or dentures fitted. However, now, with dental implants, you can replace your missing tooth with a completely natural looking new tooth, which works in exactly the same way as an original tooth.
Dental implants are the most effective long-term treatment for missing or damaged teeth. The implant is a fine titanium rod, which is fitted into a pre-drilled socket in the jaw bone. Once the implant is settled into the jaw, a new crown is fitted to the implant and the new smile is complete.
Dental implants have a range of benefits. They look completely natural, they function as effectively as natural teeth and they reduce bone loss. The implant is made of titanium, meaning that it settles into the bone tissue without having any adverse effects on the healthy surrounding tissue.
As well as being attached to crowns, dental implants can also be used to support dental bridges and dentures. Many people think of bulky false teeth when they hear the words dentures, but dentures have come a long way and they are now much lighter, more comfortable and more realistic looking. Dentures that are anchored by dental implants improve function and prevent pain and discomfort caused by ill-fitting dentures. You can also rest assured that your dentures will never come loose and you can continue to eat whatever you want.
