What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants aim to fully replace your lost tooth from top to bottom. Using a titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone, we replace the natural root that has been damaged. The implant is then attached to this screw, restoring your smile to its previous glory.

 

What Is the Difference Between Dental Implants and Dentures?

The essential difference between dentures and implants is:

  • Dental Implants are permanent and fixed,
  • whereas dentures can be removed when required.

However, there are several other distinctions that may make dental implants preferable for you.

Why You Need an Implant Dentist

Dental implants have come a long way since they were first introduced. They not only provide a long-lasting solution to missing teeth, but you’ll also be given a beautiful smile and restored mouth function.

You will be able to eat and drink just as you were used to, without having to worry or be self-conscious about them being damaged or falling out. They also look great. People will not be able to notice that you have anything that isn’t 100% natural and real. You’ll be able to smile with confidence; there’s no need to hide your teeth.

Dental implants are also the healthy option. Because you are fully mimicking real teeth, the underlying jawbone will not continue to shrink. Facial support and gum health will be maintained through the stabilising qualities of the base of the implant.

Compared to bridgework, dental implants may be the better choice. The reason for this is that implants act independently – in other words, you don’t need the support from adjacent teeth for a successful procedure. This means that you are not placing any unnecessary pressure on your other healthy teeth.
