What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a device made from titanium that is designed to permanently replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants restore full oral functionality with the appearance of a natural looking tooth. They are surgically inserted into the jawbone at the site of tooth loss to solve the issue at the source. The replacement of missing teeth is important to a patient’s oral health and overall well-being.
Why would I need dental implants?
The common reason for needing dental implants is the absence of one or more teeth. Tooth loss can be caused by infection, gum disease, accident or injury and can in turn cause infections and oral health complications. Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace singular or multiple teeth, provide support for a partial denture and enhance chewing abilities. Dental implants additionally increase confidence while smiling, talking and eating. Dental implants also prevent existing natural teeth from migrating and changing position, which is a process that generally commences about six months after a tooth is removed.
Who can get dental implants?
Dental implants are the perfect solution if you have any missing teeth or if you are currently wearing dentures. Even if you are missing all of your teeth, dental implants can still be used, restoring full oral function and aesthetics. The only specific requirement for dental implant treatment is that the patient is in good general health and has enough bone in the area of the missing tooth to anchor the implant. However, if this is not the case, bone grafts may be placed.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants produce unparalleled aesthetic and functional results, compared to other existing treatments. This treatment is a permanent solution for tooth loss, and does not damage the integrity of the surrounding natural teeth.
