What are they?
A dental implant is a small titanium cylinder that’s inserted into the bone of the jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth can then be attached to the implant, or it can be used as part of a bridge.
What are the advantages to an implant over a partial denture?
Using a dental implant to support a bridge is a good way to replace missing teeth. Securing your teeth with dental implants can make a world of difference.
You can eat, talk, laugh, and smile with confidence.
Implants are used to permanently restore the spaces left by a missing tooth or teeth, even in cases where there are no teeth present at all.
What are the key benefits?
- A terrific smile
- The clasps and metal work that comes with a partial denture are avoided
- An implant can help stop the continuing bone loss that begins when teeth are removed.
- Teeth either side of a space would not need to be treated so there would be no risks associated with any other teeth
