Dental Implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth.
A Dental implant is an artificial tooth root, surgically placed into your jaw, which holds a replacement tooth or bridge. They integrate into the structure of your bone and prevent loss of the bone after a tooth is removed. They are often more ‘tooth saving’ than traditional treatments since they do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
Implants are often the best solution to a missing tooth or teeth as they offer:
Implants look and feel just like natural teeth.
Your Dental Implant will act just like real teeth. You will be able to eat and chew again without pain or irritation. They will also maintain your bone structure and support your facial tissues. They can reduce or eliminate bone atrophy, which causes “shrinkage” or facial cosmetic changes.
The quality of the adjacent teeth is not sacrificed because they do not have to be cut with the drill to provide support for a conventional bridge. This is of significant long-term benefit to your oral health.
Dental implants will allow you to speak and eat with more confidence and comfort.
The success rate of dental implants is very high and they are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
Enjoy Your Favourite Foods
Dental Implants can actually allow for the improved enjoyment of the textures and flavours of your favourite foods. With less plastic covering the roof of your mouth, you can enjoy natural flavours and sensations again.
The ideal candidate for dental implants is in good general and oral health. They must have adequate bone available to support the Implant.
Implant placement requires a small surgical procedure. A general anaesthetic is not required. Treatment is normally far less painful and traumatic than you might think. Modern techniques ensure that the insertion of the implants can be carried out relatively quickly and with minimal discomfort.
