What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are like the root of your natural tooth - but made of titanium. It’s the most up-to-date way of replacing missing teeth.
How do implants work?
The titanium dental implant is carefully and painlessly placed into the jaw where the natural root would have been. It’s then left to actually integrate with the jaw bone so they fuse together. Once integrated a crown, bridge or denture can be fixed onto the implant.
Why would I need a dental implant?When ever you have a missing tooth there are several options:
- Leave the gap
Many people choose dental implants because they are totally secure and no other teeth need to be treated to replace the missing tooth.
What can dental implants do?Dental implants can be used to:
- Replace a single missing tooth
- Replace several missing teeth using a bridge
- Replace all the teeth using bridges or implant supported dentures
They can be used on their own or as part of a bigger smile makeover.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are some of the most predictable dental restorations.
Does it hurt?
The placement of dental implants is much less invasive than ever before. The area is totally numb so the procedure is painless and most people experience only very mild discomfort in the days following the placement.
