Do you feel anxious about smiling due to missing teeth? Or maybe you want to smile and eat with confidence but ill-fitting dentures are making this difficult? Then dental implants could be life changing for you!
Dental implants are a long term answer to gaps in your smile. Not only are they the most advanced form of teeth restoration available today, but also a permanent and attractive solution. They look, feel and act like normal teeth and, depending on how well you look after them, can last a lifetime.
Dental implants function very similarly to natural teeth. This super security and natural feel can let you enjoy your life without your previous dental distress. Unlike other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants do not require work on the surrounding teeth and instead leaves them completely undamaged.
A dental implant is simply a titanium screw that is gently inserted into the jawbone. Titanium is the ideal substance to stimulate a tooth root as it is accepted by the body. Over time the bone gradually grows up and attached to the titanium implant giving all the support holding it firmly in place.
The implant is then attached to an abutment which is a small ceramic or titanium component which ensures the perfect fit between the implant and the crown. This is then followed by attaching the crown, bridge or prosthesis.
The size and tone of remaining teeth are used to help form the perfect replacement tooth. To ensure a natural looking smile we use ceramic crowns. The lack of dark margin around the gum makes indistinguishable from a natural tooth. This new tooth is made with the purpose of complementing the rest of the mouth to ensure your new look is improved yet still natural.
The benefits of dental implants go beyond being aesthetically pleasing and enabling you to eat with confidence. Having a new, natural smile can have benefits psychologically, physically and socially. Which really will give you a reason to show off your new smile!
