Dental implants are a highly effective treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Whether you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants provide a great alternative to dentures or unsatisfactory prosthetics.
Essentially, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically fixed into a patient’s jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place.
This means that the implant screw can naturally integrate with the bone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement. It functions identically to your natural teeth and is just as strong.
As a permanent solution to missing teeth, dental implants will renew your ability to chew properly as well as prevent chipping and tilting of adjacent teeth.
Other benefits of dental implants include:
- A close match to appearance and feel of natural teeth.
- Help retain bone structure.
- No disturbance caused to existing teeth.
If you have lost one or more teeth, you may be a suitable candidate for a dental implant. Contact our friendly front desk team today to arrange a consultation and find out more.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
