The permanent solution to missing teeth and uncomfortable dentures

Having a missing tooth can really knock your confidence. The ability to eat what you please and smile when you like are both very precious; something you realize if you lose them. And while there are a few different solutions for filling gaps in your teeth, dental implants offer the peace of mind of a permanent and secure solution.

Dental Implants

What is a dental implant?

Put simply, a dental implant is a titanium screw that gets inserted into the jawbone in place of a missing tooth. A small post gets attached to this screw and a natural-looking crown is then fixed to the post. This in effect, replaces both the look and function of the missing tooth. Because of the biocompatible natures of titanium, the screw will stay secure in your jawbone – leaving you free to eat and smile as you please.

Five reasons to choose dental implants over a bridge or denture

1. If cared for properly implants can last a lifetime with relatively low maintenance compared to other option.
2. Implants don’t interfere with your other teeth. Some crown or denture options require the adjustment of healthy teeth to accommodate them. Not so with dental implants.
3. With dental implants you can eat whatever foods you wish. With dentures, some foods can be tricky to eat.
4. Just like a natural tooth, an implant will stimulate the jawbone and prevent bone loss that can make you look prematurely aged. Crowns, bridges and dentures will address short-term cosmetic problems, but they don’t stop the jawbone loss that can occur as a result of tooth loss.
