Dental Implants are a fantastic solution for patients needing to replace a missing tooth. Implants are typically a dental treatment for people who have recently lost a tooth due to periodontal disease or potentially an injury,
A dental Implant is a Titanium ‘screw’ which is gently inserted into the jawbone, to hold a beautifully made, durable and strong porcelain tooth. Also, in some cases, implants can be used to support complete dentures to make them stable and not moving when chewing certain foods.
If you are a looking for a dental implant then your dentist will create a sequence of appointments which are necessary steps in the preparation and success of the treatment. Your dentist will take you through the steps so you are comfortable about the whole process.
Titanium screws have the ability to fuse to bone, and this feature is necessary in order for dental implants to be successful. When a tooth or multiple teeth are lost, the bone that originally supported them begins to shrink causing sunken face appearance over time.
Patients who have had dental implants are more likely to retain the ability to eat, smile and talk in a comfortable functional way. There can be some initial discomfort when getting an implant however as time goes by and you become more familiar with the feeling it becomes more natural.
Perhaps the most important technological advancement in dental implants is the tiny mini-implant. This mini-implant is considerably smaller than the traditional dental implant, so they are much easier to install in the jawbone.
