If you are missing a tooth – or several teeth – this can create major problems in your mouth. It can ruin your smile and affect your confidence. The remaining teeth can gradually shift or rotate into the gap, resulting in a misaligned bite. Missing teeth also make you more prone to gum disease. Dental implants are effectively used to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants, or tooth implants, consist of posts or frames which are surgically implanted into your jawbone and provide a base for mounting replacement teeth onto.
You must have healthy gums and adequate bone for tooth implants to be successful.
Types of Dental Implants
Benefits of Dental Implants
Once they have been surgically implanted, teeth implants look and feel like normal teeth. They are fused to your jawbone, so they provide an extremely stable base for dentures and bridges that will not slip or shift. This means they are even more effective at restoring your ability to eat and speak properly.
Dental implants replace missing teeth without needing to be anchored to any other teeth. They are also considered to be a permanent option for replacing missing teeth as they do not usually need to be replaced every few years.
For dental implants to be a long-term success, it is important to have excellent oral hygiene, which will keep the structures healthy.
