What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are the best option today to replace missing teeth. An implant is an artificial tooth root, positioned in your jaw in place of your original missing teeth, and then used as a support for replacement teeth such as crowns or dental-bridges-liverpool. They are secured firmly and you don't have to remove them to clean around them..
Dental implants have made it possible for patients to avoid dentures and partial dentures. Implants can improve your ability to chew and eliminate facial changes such as shrinkage around the corners of the mouth from denture use.
Why we recommend dental implants?
The loss of a single tooth can have serious repercussions for the rest of your mouth, but with dental implants, it’s like you never lost a tooth at all. The absence of even one tooth will cause surrounding teeth to shift and weaken over time. The jaw structure is compromised because the root of the missing tooth is also gone. The bone will shrink in this area. Dental implants are actually rooted into the jaw, much like a natural tooth, which helps to support and stabilize the surrounding teeth and preserve the jaw bone.
- The dental implant is fixed and is the most aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement option.
- Usually no other teeth would need to be affected.
- Missing teeth, single or multiple teeth can be best replaced with dental implants.
