Stable and Secure Teeth Replacement With Dental Implants

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

If you’re looking for an effective, reliable means of replacing missing teeth, look no further than dental implants. Implants guarantee stability and functionality and they offer a long-term solution for tooth loss.

Introducing dental implants

Dental implants are an increasingly popular treatment for patients who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth. Implants are designed to replace the root of the missing tooth and they are placed inside small openings in the jaw bone. In most cases, titanium is used to create implants because this is a biocompatible material, which enables the implant to integrate into the bone tissue. Once the implant has settled, it can then be attached to a bridge, a denture or a crown to complete the process of replacing the tooth.

The advantages of implants

Implants are a really impressive step forward in the replacement of missing natural teeth. Implants are built to last for years and they offer a longer lasting and more durable alternative to bridges and dentures. Implants also enhance the functionality of the mouth, as the implant is as strong and stable as a healthy natural root. You can eat whatever you like and you should also find that your speech becomes clearer. Implants also help to reduce the risk of bone loss.

Another advantage of implants is their versatility. Implants are compatible with different types of restoration, meaning they can be used for most patients regardless of how many teeth are missing.

What are implant-retained dentures?

Most people are familiar with dentures, prosthetic sets of teeth that are used to replace lost natural teeth, but implant-retained dentures are less well-known. With implant-retained dentures, the denture is anchored by dental implants. Implants are titanium appliances, which sit in the jaw bone. Their role is to replace to natural tooth root.

Usually, when you have a denture, it is held in place by the suction of the gums or a denture fixative. With implant-retained dentures, the denture is stabilised by implants. Once the implants have been inserted into sockets in the jaw bone, the denture is attached.

What are the benefits of implant-retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures offer solutions to almost all of the problems people encounter with dentures. With implants there to support the denture, there’s no risk of the new teeth slipping or sliding. This gives you peace of mind, the ability to eat anything you want and a gorgeous smile.
