Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients who have lost one or more of their natural teeth. Implants are small, titanium screws that are placed directly into the jawbone, supporting replacement teeth in the form of bridges, crowns or secure dentures.
There are many reasons we see patients who have lost their teeth, from gum disease and decay to accident and injury. Whatever the reason, missing teeth can have a serious, negative impact on your quality of life. As well as making you self-conscious about smiling, having missing teeth means that additional strain is put on any remaining teeth. Other teeth may move position into the gap, becoming crooked and difficult to clean, you may have problems following a healthy diet because you struggle to bite and chew food, and the shape of your face can change, developing a sagging, sunken appearance that makes you look prematurely old.
Dental implants are the only permanent solution to missing teeth, and they have several advantages over other options. The implants are osteoconductive, meaning they support bone growth, integrating with the bone and providing a firm anchor for replacement teeth. This helps to prevent the bone loss that causes the sagging appearance in the face. Because they are fixed in place, crowns, bridges and dentures won't become loose the way that unsecured dentures do. Replacement teeth fixed by implants also look just like regular teeth.
Implants can be used to replace any number of teeth, from a single tooth to a complete set. Normally, five or six implants are enough to support all the replacement teeth in one jaw.
