Implants are sophisticated titanium rods, implanted in the jawbone, where, over a period of several months, they integrate with the surrounding bone and become rigid ‘roots’ and can be used to replace single or multiple teeth, stabilise dentures or even replace a whole mouth of missing teeth with fixed bridgework. They have many advantages compared to traditional crown and bridge solutions.
Here are six reasons why you should consider them:
- They look, feel and function like natural teeth.
- Existing healthy teeth do not need to be damaged to support the dental implants.
- By anchoring the dental implants in the jawbone they will stimulate bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, aesthetic result. This helps to maintain your facial structures.
- No adhesives are required to hold the new teeth in place.
- They eliminate the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures.
- They provide a secure, permanent tooth replacement.
Parts of the Dental Implant
Dental implant technology has been used to permanently replace teeth since the mid-60s.
A small titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone. Titanium is a metal accepted by the body and heals together with the bone tissue to form a new, stable tooth root.
An abutment is a ceramic or titanium component that ensures a secure fit between the dental implant and the crown.
Once the dental implant and the abutment are in place, we fit the crown, the bridge or the prosthesis.
