Dental implants are a revolutionary method used to replace one or several missing teeth. A dental implant replicates a natural tooth root as it bonds with the jawbone to become a solid structural foundation to which a crown, bridge or when several implants are placed, denture can be secured.
Receiving an implant requires meticulous preparation and a skilled hand. In a minor surgical procedure, the dentist gently guides the implant into a position pre-determined during examinations and evaluation of detailed radiographs. The procedure is completed under local anaesthetic with many people who receive dental implants report it as being a comfortable procedure and often can return to work and their normal daily life the following day. The end result is a natural looking, undetectable replacement for the missing tooth.
Dental implants with tooth coloured restorations are the closest thing to regrowing your natural teeth. Implants are a strong, stable, durable and virtually undetectable solution to replacing missing teeth. Implants provide better chewing ability and head off jaw joint problems.
Dental implants are state-of-the-art restorations and have few disadvantages when compared to alternatives such as dentures. Dental implants involve surgery as well as time to heal. Implants are known to be initially more expensive than dentures or fixed bridges. However, these drawbacks can be offset by the ease of use, and the many long-term oral and general health benefits.
It’s important to replace missing teeth for reasons other than your smile appearance. When you have missing teeth, your adjacent and opposing teeth can move out of alignment, this can cause a disruption to your bite pattern and impact on your overall oral and general health.
Dental implants are the ideal tooth replacement solution. They look, feel and function as normal teeth allowing you to talk comfortably, eat all your favourite foods and eliminate gum pain, which is experienced by many people who wear dentures.
