Dental implants are an innovative, popular and effective method of replacing a missing tooth or several teeth. They offer a range of benefits over other restoration methods, primarily that they secure directly to the jaw, providing a very natural feel in the mouth.
They do not impact your natural teeth unlike a bridge, which anchors to the neighbouring teeth at either side of the gap. In addition, a dental implant is the best way to prevent or reverse the effects of bone loss after losing a tooth.
When we lose a tooth, over time, the surrounding bone in the jaw begins to break down and recede. This can impact the health of the neighbouring teeth and affect your suitability for a dental implant in the future. Promptly fitting a dental implant prevents the loss of bone from occurring.
Many people believe that it takes one implant to replace each individual missing tooth. However, this isn’t the case and in fact, one or two dental implants can be used to replace a number of missing teeth, or a whole arch of teeth can be replaced with just 4 implants.
That’s why dental implants are a great, more permanent solution compared to dentures. We’ve helped many patients achieve the smile they’ve always dreamed of with our dental implant solutions.
