If you’ve lost a tooth due to decay, gum disease or injury, you’re probably looking for a solution that may not involve dentures or bridges, and dental implants could be the answer.
Dental implants are an ingenious dental solution that is gaining tremendous traction as the dental option of choice for people who have lost their tooth and are looking for a permanent, natural looking solution that is comfortable.
The benefits of dental implants include:
Implants are designed to look and feel like your own teeth, allowing you to feel comfortable and without the fear of your tooth ‘falling out’ in social situations. Your bone actually fuses to the titanium of the dental implant so is a permanent fixture in the jaw, making it virtually impossible for the implant to come away unless surgically removed.
Losing a tooth cannot only be unsightly, but it can also be uncomfortable if you have to wear dentures, or the missing tooth is replaced with a bridge which you can’t clean easily. Dental implants are designed to fit in your mouth like a natural tooth. You don’t have to take them out like dentures to clean, and you clean them with brushing and floss like a regular tooth.
Easier to eat
It can be a challenge to eat without a tooth and dental implants allow for easier eating and improved function in the jaw so you can enjoy meals without discomfort. The implants are designed to feel completely natural, and before long you will have completely forgotten your new tooth addition is even there.
If you have one or more teeth missing and you’re interested in looking into the benefits of dental implants, it’s well worth discussing the option with your dental professional to find if this opportunity is a suitable dental solution for your needs.
Dental implants are available in a wide range of options including single tooth implants, retained fixed bridge, implant over dentures and more. The procedure is conducted under local aesthetic and done right here in the dental chair for your convenience.
