Dental implants are a simple, secure and permanent solution to the problem of failing or missing teeth. They are effectively replacement tooth roots on which we can build a new tooth and are inserted into same position as the missing tooth. They are indistinguishable from natural teeth and provide an alternative to uncomfortable dentures or bridgework.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- The ability to chew and enjoy your food in a similar way to that achieved prior to tooth loss.
- Confidence that the fixed bridge or tooth replacement feels as secure as a natural tooth.
- The protection of your remaining teeth and jaw bone.
As more and more people are keeping their natural teeth into old age, it’s understandable that they want them to look good too. Worn, yellow teeth and loose dentures are no longer an acceptable part of old age. Modern techniques and materials allow dentists to rebuild teeth and smiles to there former glory with tooth whitening techniques, veneers and crowns, even missing teeth can be replaced with permanently fixed-in implants and bridges.
It’s not just a person’s smile that is affected when teeth are broken or missing, chewing function is impaired, often leading to indigestion and a reduced enjoyments at mealtimes. Speech can suffer too: we need our teeth to form certain sounds, without them speech can be slurred and lisping may occur.
