If you are looking for a natural looking and long-term solution to missing teeth, dental implants are the way to go.
Whereas dentures can be uncomfortable, and easy to break and lose, dental implants offer greater durability and convenience for patients.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is essentially a new ‘tooth’ inserted into a tooth gap. Offering a beautiful and natural look, implants are becoming increasingly popular for patients looking for a beautiful and complete smile without dentures.
What is the dental implant process?
The dental implant procedure is done in two parts:
- First, an artificial root made of titanium is inserted into the jaw and left for around three to four months for the bone to fuse with the new root. Titanium is used because of the extremely low body-rejection rates – titanium is a common metal for artificial implants
- Then, a finely sculpted tooth (known as a crown) is then fitted to the implanted titanium root.
Do I have to be careful with my implant?
Your new dental implant looks and feels like a new tooth – and with its strong root, offers the same durability.
