Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most advanced and most permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They are often regarded as being the gold standard for tooth replacement due to the way the implant replicates a natural tooth root. A dental implant prevents other teeth from moving out of position, helping to ensure your teeth bite together correctly.
The implant post helps prevent bone loss through providing the necessary stimulation to keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
The procedure for having a dental implant is very straightforward and is suitable for most healthy people; age is certainly no barrier. The dental implant post is inserted into your jawbone during a small surgical procedure. The implant post is made from titanium alloy as this integrates very well with your natural bone, and after a few months it should provide a stable anchor for a replacement tooth (crown).
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, while multiple implants can be used to secure bridges and even full dentures. They should look and feel incredibly natural and secure, so no one need know you are missing any teeth. If properly cared for, a dental implant can last for many years or possibly for life.
