About Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of a metal framework or posts that are fitted into your jaw bone, on
which new artificial teeth can be placed as a permanent solution to restore your smile and teeth functions.

Do you need dental implants

You may require a dental implant if you have missing teeth or have teeth that are so badly
broken that they can not be restored through restorative measures, such as a crown. Some patients are also unable to rely on other options, such as bridges or dentures, due to sensitivity or poor ridges among other reasons, and have to resort to implants.

Why consider implants

The benefits of dental implants are they stop your teeth from shifting into the empty space left by the missing tooth, which can cause other dental complications. Other options, such as bridges do solve this issue, but implants solve it and conserve your jawbone because of the implanted support. With bridges, a dental prosthesis that joins an artificial tooth to the neighbouring remaining teeth, and with dentures, the jawbone can deteriorate as there is no more stimulation to the bone.

Dental implants also conserve your appearance as a deteriorating jaw bone can make your face appear sunken. If you are currently wearing dentures, there are ways in which to get a permanent solution with implant-supported dentures.
