Dental implants are a perfect and permanent way to replace missing teeth without the difficulty often associated with dentures. As dentures are prone to slip and slide whilst eating or talking, especially on the lower jaw, dental implants are the best alternative, using titanium anchors to stabilise your dental restorative.
Dental implants make your dentures stables, more comfortable and easy to use, giving you a perfect smile and your confidence back.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
The main benefit of dental implants is that they can last a person a whole lifetime. Dental implants will replace any missing or damaged teeth and look just as real as the surrounding healthy teeth without damaging any of them. In fact they do the complete opposite, as dental implants can assist with preserving the adjacent bone and gum tissue, which is usually worn down with the use of traditional dentures.
What happens during the dental implant procedure?
The procedure for placing dental implants involves surgically placing implant titanium anchors into the jawbone of the patient. These anchors will then function like the natural root of the tooth and after a sufficient amount of time has passed the anchors will bond with the bone and gum tissue surrounding them. Studs are then attached to the anchors, so when the gum and bone has healed natural looking crowns, dentures or bridges can be attached to the studs to give you back that confidence-boosting smile.
Once this is done you continue living just the way you did with your original teeth and wont have to suffer the problems that come with dentures such as eating certain food, as these teeth are just as good as natural teeth.
