What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small metal post that is inserted securely into the site of the missing tooth in the gum. It is designed to provide a permanent foundation for lost teeth. Additionally, implants help to prevent issues that can occur from an absent tooth, such as an unbalanced bite, stress on the remaining teeth and loss of your natural smile. They also provide support for the jawbone that prevents it from deteriorating and stimulate new bone growth. Once fitted, an artificial replacement tooth that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth is fitted onto the implant.
Implants enable you to eat virtually any food and smile with confidence, knowing that your teeth appear natural and facial contours are preserved.
Why Choose Implants?
Dental implants are stronger and more durable than other restorative solutions, like bridges and dentures. They offer a long-lasting solution with extremely high success rates and the option to replace teeth without impacting any of the neighbouring teeth. Further benefits of implants include reduced risk of dental decay, bone-loss prevention and improved speech and self-image.
Additionally, implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness. For example, a single implant can serve to support a dental crown replacing a single missing tooth. They can also support a dental bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth or can be used with dentures to increase stability and reduce gum tissue irritation.
