Dental implants have revolutionised the way that missing teeth are replaced. They are now regarded as the most effective solution to replacing a single tooth or multiple/all missing teeth.
The loss of one or more teeth can have a significant impact on everyday life and self-esteem. However, modern dental implants are natural, highly aesthetic and long-lasting, enabling you to look and feel your best.
There is no need to accept gaps in your smile or live with loose ill-fitting dentures.
Apart from the obvious aesthetic reasons, missing teeth can and should be replaced. Replacing missing teeth not only restores the appearance of your smile, but also allows you to function normally and eat whatever you like without fear of damaging the adjacent teeth.
Implants will also prevent adjacent teeth from drifting into the gap and opposing teeth from growing into to the gap, a process called ‘over-eruption’. Once these movements occur they are notoriously difficult to treat and can lead to bite and functional problems.
Replacing teeth as quickly as possible will prevent the above processes from starting, thereby avoiding these potential pitfalls.
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.
Once this has been achieved, the new tooth, bridge or denture can be attached. These replacement teeth are completely bespoke and are produced to meet your individual needs.
