Dental implants are the next best thing to natural strong teeth. They offer patients with one or more missing teeth the opportunity to restore full form and function to their mouths. This not only aids with everyday tasks such as eating but also can increase confidence and create a natural healthy smile. Dental implants are designed to not only replace the visible parts of teeth but the entire structure. This is done by implanting titanium rods into the gum, which fuse and becomes apart of your natural anatomy. Custom crafted teeth are then fitted to the implant. This is what makes dental implants the next best thing to a natural healthy tooth, it maintains root strength and integrity like no other and gives you back complete functionality. Multiple dental implants are becoming popular not only as the base for bridges and crowns but also for those with dentures as it gives them a more solid foundation.
This treatment is lengthy, however it is a long-term solution to a range of oral health concerns such as missing or weak teeth, and denture discomfort. Before starting the treatment our dentists will assess your oral health and conduct a full examination, he will discuss all of your treatment options with you so you can establish whether this is the path you would like to take. Once this is done anesthetic will be administered and the titanium rod implant will be fitted. You will come back again to ensure that it is healing properly. If the implant is fitted in order to support a bridge or crown those will be fitted as well. Depending on how the implant is healing and fusing to the bone you will come in for checkups, it is also essential that you continue regular checkups to ensure the integrity of your implant and subsequent crowns or bridges over their lifetime.
