Dental Implants – the next best thing to your natural teeth
Dental implants can be used to support single crowns, multiple tooth bridges or full dentures. The aesthetic and functional results are generally better than loose prostheses. When properly looked after, implant-supported dental restorations can last a lifetime.
Why choose Dental Implants?
Having dental implants can provide you with many benefits, particularly if you have removable replacement teeth. Dental implants can provide you with teeth that look and feel like your own, improving things such as your speech and overall comfort. It is much easier to eat, with the disappearance of pain and discomfort. The permanent and fixed technique aids your confidence and self-esteem, as you have no worry of anything becoming loose or falling out. Most importantly, it improves your oral health.
A dental implant is a titanium metal rod used to replace lost or failing tooth roots. Implant-supported false teeth overcome the inconvenience and discomfort of loose dentures. With implants, there’s no need to damage adjacent healthy teeth to attach a bridge. Continuing to use the underlying bone reduces resorption, which can cause later problems. Patients who have benefited from dental implant treatment are normally very enthusiastic about the results.
Dental Implants generally involve different stages. At first, you will need your implant put in place into your jaw, which is often a one or two-stage procedure. Once the implant is in place, it will take time for the surrounding bone to fuse with the new implant. This can take as little as six weeks, or as long as six months. With your bone satisfactorily fused to the new implant, the construction and fitting of your crown or bridge can commence.
