Restoring missing teeth with long-lasting dental implantsWhat are implants?
The implant itself is the titanium post that is placed in the jaw bone. This artificial root can be used to support a single crown (in place of a single missing tooth) or a bridge (to replace more than one tooth in a row). Titanium is accepted incredibly well by the body and eventually becomes fused to the bone. Because of this, implants can also be used to support dentures and full mouth restorations.
Why have implants?
- Unlike ill-fitting dentures, which can have a tendency to move around uncomfortably in your mouth, implants stay firmly in place.
- Implants help protect the jawbone by keeping it stimulated and they prevent existing teeth from moving around.
- They eliminate the speaking and chewing problems that may be caused by missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures.
- They can provide a significant boost to your confidence by restoring your smile.
Am I suitable for dental implants?
Before we make any start on your implant treatment, we need to assess the amount of jaw bone that you have to make sure the implant will fuse effectively. We take 3D x-rays to get a very clear idea of your bone volume. If we believe an implant will successfully work, we will arrange for the next steps.
If there isn’t suitable bone density, we can arrange for bone graft treatment to replenish lost bone.
