Dental implants have revolutionised the way dentists can treat tooth loss.
Dental Implants are titanium fixtures that mimic the performance of your missing tooth root. Once inserted into your jaw these fixtures fully integrate with your natural jaw bone material over a period of months (a process called osseointegration) to form a solid foundation for prosthetic tooth replacements.
Why replace missing teeth?
Aesthetic benefits aside, there are many reasons why you should replace missing teeth. Tooth loss may result in:
- Cause existing teeth to migrate from position
- Generate difficulties when speaking or chewing
- A decrease in oral function and aesthetics
The benefits of dental implants.
Dental implants mimic the feel form and function of natural teeth better than any current restorative treatment to date. Furthermore they can help support the health of your oral area by preventing the migration of teeth from position, decreasing the stress exerted on surrounding teeth, and retaining bone and gum tissue. Dental implants are a solution to tooth loss and may be the most appropriate restorative treatment for you.
