Dental implants offer people who are missing one or more of their teeth the opportunity to restore full form and function to their mouths. Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are truly the next best thing to having a mouth full of strong, healthy natural teeth.
Dental implants are designed to replace the entire structure of missing teeth, from root to crown. The implants themselves are usually made from titanium or a titanium alloy, which act as artificial tooth roots. Once they have been surgically embedded in the jaw, the implant posts fuse to the natural bone tissue through a process called osseointegration. They essentially become part of the patient's natural anatomy, providing security and stability comparable to healthy tooth roots. Custom-crafted replacement teeth are then attached to the implants via abutments.
Implants have a superior success rate compared to other dental prosthetics. As such dental implants can last for decades with proper daily maintenance including daily brushing and flossing plus regular visits to your dentist and hygienist.
A single lost or damaged tooth can influence your daily life. Even though it may be at the back of your mouth and not visible from the outside, over time it can start affecting your appearance, self-esteem, your oral health and even your health in general. Dental implants are widely considered to be the most successful method of tooth replacement used today, because they give a number of benefits to patients.
A dental implant looks and feels just like your natural tooth. The colour, shape and contour of the new tooth is made to match. Implant treatment can be considered a long-term investment into your health and your well being.
