Dental implants represent a long-term solution for lost teeth and they enable you to enjoy all the same benefits of a strong and healthy natural tooth.
All about dental implants
Dental implants are made from titanium and their purpose is to replace the root of a missing tooth. The implant sits in a socket in the jaw bone and it is able to become part of the bone tissue thanks to a process called osseointegration.
Once the process is complete, a new restoration can be attached and this replaces the crown section of the tooth. One of the many benefits of dental implants is that they are compatible with a range of different restorations and this means that they are suitable for most patients.
Implant treatment takes between 3 and 9 months and the result is a natural looking, strong and functional new tooth or set of teeth.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants are the best long-term option for replacing missing teeth and they also offer many additional benefits, including excellent aesthetics, enhanced bite power and durability. Implants are easy to maintain and act like natural teeth, so you have complete peace of mind and can enjoy eating and socialising with confidence. Implants also help to reduce bone loss and can be fitted to crowns, dentures or a dental bridge, making them hugely versatile.
