So, if you are embarrassed about gaps in your smile, have certain teeth that you avoid chewing with, or are fed up with uncomfortable dentures. An implant gives you the perfect replacement, without affecting any of your healthy teeth. Dental implants may be an ideal solution for you.
A titanium post is placed into the jaw bone to replace the roots of the missing tooth. Once the implant has integrated into the bone, which can take a few months, a custom-made crown is screwed directly onto it. During the integration period, a temporary tooth can be fitted, so the post is never visible.
For many people, dental implants can last a lifetime, providing welcome relief from the noticeable signs of ageing from premature tooth loss. They will blend naturally with your remaining teeth, without damaging them. In fact, dental implants can preserve the adjacent bone and gum tissue that is often worn down.
An implant, placed by a highly experienced dentist using proper treatment planning and the best materials available, can last 10-15 years at a conservative estimate.Back to Dental Implants
