Dental Implants are used to support one or more false teeth. An implant is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth that has failed. Just like a tooth root, it is placed in the jawbone
Implants have now been used by dentists for a number of years and are a safe and long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. If the implant is taken care of it should last a number of years.
In order to place implants, it is necessary to ensure that there is enough bone in your jaw for the implant to be placed into.
If an implant is needed to replace a single tooth there is no need to cut into the adjacent teeth as you will have to with a bridge.
Dentures can make it difficult to eat or speak, with implants teeth are securely fixed to the bone and so movement is reduced.
Dental implants help to preserve your facial bone, improve your appearance and enhance your ability to chew your food when compared to dentures.
