What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium screw-like devices, which are designed to act as prosthetic tooth roots. Implants are used to anchor new teeth when a natural tooth has been lost through injury, trauma, gum disease or decay. Implants are secured in small sockets in the jaw bone, and they undergo a process called osseointegration, which enables the implant to settle into the bone tissue. Once the implant has healed, the new tooth is attached. Implants are compatible with crowns, dentures and dental bridges, and this means that they can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants provide a long-term solution for tooth loss. With implants, you can enjoy peace of mind that your new teeth are completely stable and secure, and you can enjoy feeling confident when you smile again. Implants are durable, they offer exceptional standards of functionality, and they also produce beautiful smiles. Implants are also a very versatile option, as they can be attached to bridges, crowns and dentures. This means that they are suitable for a wide range of patients.
