What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Compared to dentures, bridges, and crowns, dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Dental implants have revolutionized how we can help solve your tooth loss. They are the gold standard for tooth replacement as they effectively replace the missing tooth root, solving tooth loss at the source. The benefits of dental implants include:
Once fully healed, they provide optimal comfort
this is because the jawbone fuses with the implant, providing a replacement that feels just like your natural tooth!
while traditional treatments were cosmetic solutions, dental implants provide a strong, powerful and completely functional restorative solution.
Enhanced Oral Health
A complete smile means an easier cleaning surface, which results in a minimised risk of tooth decay or gum disease.No more gaps in your smile.
DENTAL IMPLANTS VS BRIDGES
Why are Dental Implants More Efficient Than Bridges?
While dental bridges may have their own benefits, they rely on the adjacent teeth to support the missing tooth. This may involve shaving down healthy teeth and reducing their long term survival. A dental bridge merely connects the remaining teeth via a false prosthetic tooth, literally ‘bridging the gap’ left by a missing tooth.
While there may be some situations where a bridge is a better option than an implant which is carefully assessed for every case, however dental implants effectively mimic the function of a natural tooth root, which allows the restoration to be completely functional and feel just like your natural teeth!
