What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a fixed, long-term solution. They are strong, comfortable and very natural-looking, and for the significant majority of patients, they are the best option for replacing missing teeth.
The implant itself is an artificial root made from titanium, integrating over time to become part of the jawbone. An implant can hold a single replacement dental crown, a bridge or a denture, depending on how many teeth are missing.
Tooth implants are virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth, allowing you to enjoy an attractive and natural-looking smile once more. As well as this, when teeth are lost, the surrounding bone tends to shrink, resulting in the ageing ‘caved in’ look. The bone can be preserved by the placement of dental implants, with the shape and the structure of the lips and cheeks maintained.
Features and Benefits of Dental Implants
They look and perform like natural teeth.
There is no artificial plastic on the roof of your mouth and the need for adhesives or denture creams is eliminated.
There is no fear of your teeth slipping or falling out. There will be no need to avoid any activities and you will not need to worry about what you eat.
They have no impact on the surrounding healthy teeth. Dental implants can be placed and the new crown fitted without damaging healthy adjacent teeth.
They have a very high success rate. With over decades of clinical research, dental implants have a 97% or higher success rate.
