WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are the only permanent long term tooth replacement option for missing teeth. A dental implant will serve as both the replacement of the tooth roots and teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as an artificial tooth root that is securely anchored into the jawbone and replaces the root of a missing natural tooth. Over time it naturally fuses with the existing jaw bone structure and acts as a permanent fixture for dental crowns, dentures and bridges.
ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL IMPLANT*
Made to last! Dental implants are stronger and more stable than a bridge or a crown. They are the gold standard of replacing missing tooth as they self standing and have no impact on surrounding teeth.
You will look and feel better! When it comes to replacing a missing tooth a dental implant is the closest technology dentistry has available. You can replace one or several consecutive teeth. There are multiple types of implants available that are designed and made to last years and decades if its well maintained. It will look and feel like your natural tooth so you can confidently smile and not have to worry if someone will notice its a fake tooth or worry about your teeth falling out while you are eating and speaking.
Implants can also help you defy premature aging by facial collapse. A facial collapse is common especially in patients with multiple missing teeth as teeth loss causes bone loss (Refer to the images on the right).
They are convenient- clearer speech and easier to eat! Ideal replacement option for removable dentures, meaning no embarrassing denture slip moments or messy adhesives to keep dentures in place. Also, never needs to be removed for cleaning or sleeping. You can chew naturally and pronounce words clearer compared to when you had missing teeth/tooth or a denture.
Elevates your oral overall oral health! There are health implications with tooth loss such as teeth moving to close the gap, loss of stimulation to the underlying jawbone, loss of structural support in the mouth. Prevention is key, thus by placing in implant you will be able to prevent the occurrence and minimize the adverse effects of a missing tooth.
