What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that looks like a screw used to replace the root part of the missing tooth. An artificial tooth will then be mounted onto it to fill the gap. Implants can replace one or more missing teeth with fixed restoration.
Dental Implants can be an option for people missing one or more teeth. To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums, healthy jawbone and have no conditions affecting bone healing.
Our experienced dentists will give you an assessment to determine if this treatment is suitable for you.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?
Natural Looking & Functioning Teeth
Unlike dentures, dental implant restoration allows you to have natural-looking and functioning teeth. Because implants are anchored to your jaw, it allows you to bite with the same force you use with natural teeth. Dental implants act and feel like real teeth, it lets you eat as usual without a worry!
Prevents Further Bone Loss
Bone loss is commonly a consequence of teeth loss. Our jawbone is preserved by the pressure and stimulus of chewing. This stimulation is removed when we lose teeth and our bone tends to reabsorb into the body. Dental implants are the only teeth replacement procedure that also replaces jawbone stimulation.
Enables Natural Speech
Other teeth replacements like dentures can affect the way you speak. Often it makes you slur and changes the way you pronounce words. Since implants feel and function like real teeth, this allows you to speak easily and naturally as well.
Easy To Clean
No need for cups, cleansing tablets or other special products. Taking care of implants is as easy as brushing and flossing your natural teeth.
No Embarrassing Slippage
With dentures, you may constantly worry about your teeth falling out. Dental Implants are a permanent solution, they are firmly anchored in place. You will never have to worry about speaking, laughing or eating in public ever again.
