About dental implants
Dental implants are the latest tooth replacement treatment on the market; they are designed to take on the responsibilities of the tooth root and they are compatible with a range of restorations, so they can be used to treat patients of all ages with varying dental needs.
Implants are made from titanium and they resemble small screws; the implant is secured into a socket in the jaw bone and once it has integrated into the bone tissue, the head of the implant is then attached to the restoration. Implants are compatible with bridges, dentures and crowns, so you can benefit if you have just one, a few or multiple missing teeth. The integration process, which ensures maximum stability for the new tooth, is known as osseointegration and it usually takes 3-6 months.
Once the restoration has been joined to the implant, your smile will look completely natural and your new teeth will function in the same way as healthy natural teeth. You can eat and enjoy a diverse range of foods, your speech will be clear and you can enjoy enhanced facial aesthetics, as the new teeth will provide additional support for your cheeks and lips.
As well as restoring the beauty of the smile and functionality of the mouth, dental implants can also help to reduce bone loss and they offer a long-term alternative to dentures and dental bridges.
