What are dental implants?
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants may be recommended instead of having conventional bridges or dentures.
A titanium post is placed in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or to stabilise dentures.
The implant is usually left for some months to allow the bone to form a strong bond to the implant. Then, once the implant has integrated with the bone, an artificial tooth is attached to it to give a natural look. The artificial tooth is custom made to ensure the ideal colour, shape and size.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Restore the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state
- Increase comfort by eliminating loose fitting dentures
- Avoid filing down healthy neighbouring teeth (as with a conventional bridge)
- Preserve facial structure by virtually stopping deterioration of the jaw
- Make a more natural smile improving appearance and self confidence
Are implants right for me?
To see if implants are appropriate for you, and to answer any questions you may have, please arrange an implant consultation with us and we will let you know all the possibilities.
Single tooth replacement
A crown mounted on a dental implant is the best choice if you have a tooth missing in the upper or lower jaw. The need to replace a missing tooth could be the result of an accident or because there was no predisposition for a tooth at birth.
Multiple teeth replacement
If you have lost several teeth there are two solutions: separate crowns on dental implants or a bridge attached to several dental implants.
All teeth replacement
If all of your teeth are missing in the upper or lower jaw, dental implants are the best solution. You can choose a full bridge that is attached to several dental implants. Another option is a removable prosthesis that is attached via anchoring devices to two or more dental implants. The prosthesis remains securely in place in your mouth – yet it is easy to remove.
