How Dental Implants Bring Back a Lost Smile

Have you lost your confidence as a result of losing your teeth? If so, we can help to put a smile back on your face. With incredible dental implants, we can make your smile look brand new.

Introducing implants

Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss. They are small, titanium rods placed inside sockets in the jaw bone to take up the role of the missing tooth root. Once the implant has been placed inside the opening, it goes through a process called osseointegration, which enables it to integrate into the bone tissue. This increases stability and security. When the implant has healed, a new tooth or set of teeth can be attached. Implants are a very versatile tooth replacement option, as they fit with dentures, dental bridges and individual crowns. This means that they can provide a solution for patients with any number of missing teeth.

What are the pros and cons of dental implants?

Dental implants are widely regarded as the best long-term option for patients with missing teeth. They offer strength and stability, they produce dazzling smiles, and they give you peace of mind. When you have implants, you’ll feel like you’ve got a healthy set of natural teeth again. Implants last for many years, and they are easy to maintain. As well as enabling you to do everything you can do with a healthy, natural smile, implants can also help to reduce the risk of bone loss.

The only real downsides to implants are the cost and the duration of treatment. Implants are the most expensive treatment option, and bridges and dentures are significantly cheaper. Treatment also takes a lot longer than fitting dentures and bridges, as it takes time for the implant to integrate.
