The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants can help improve the appearance and function of your smile by allowing your dentist to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Dental implants can help to:
– Provide a secure anchor for crowns, bridges or dentures.
-Protect adjacent teeth from shifting.
-Resolve bite issues or jaw joint pain.
-Improve chewing and speaking.
-Restore facial tissues and appearance.
-Maintain jaw bone levels to minimize the appearance of ageing no need for the adjacent teeth to be prepared as we do for bridges Implant supported denture feels more comfortable and stable compared to traditional dentures.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone to serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement and allow it to heal usually 3 to 6 months after surgery. During the healing process, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum. Once it is healed, your dentist will attach a tooth replacement, such as a dental crown, bridge or denture, to the implant to create the look and function of a natural tooth.
