Dental implants are a modern tooth replacement treatment; they can be used to replace a single tooth, a number of teeth or a full arch of teeth. Dental implants are used to replace the root of the missing tooth; the procedure involves placing a small titanium screw in the jaw bone and leaving it to heal and integrate into the bone tissue. Once the implant has healed, a restoration can be attached and the smile will be restored.
You may need a dental implant if you have lost a tooth or a number of teeth. Dental implants are a very popular option for people who have lost a single tooth as a result of a sporting injury or an accident and they can also be used to replace single teeth that have been extracted as a result of severe decay or damage.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor a denture; this is known as denture stabilisation or implant-retained dentures. Dental implants are highly beneficial for denture patients because they provide unrivalled support for the denture. Many denture wearers worry about their denture coming loose when they are eating or biting down on something and this is never a concern when wearing dental implants.
You may also consider having dental implants if you have a small number of missing teeth; dentures can be attached to a dental bridge, which is a popular tooth replacement option.
Dental implants are a long-term solution; they last for many years and they are durable and hard-wearing. Dental implants are very versatile and they can anchor dentures, dental bridges and crowns to replace a single tooth, a number of teeth or a full arch of teeth. Dental implants provide excellent aesthetics and functionality and they also help to reduce bone loss, which occurs when the jaw bone starts to lose density.
