Benefits of Dental Implants

Published on 15/11/2014

Dental Implants have become very popular treatments in Essex for replacing missing tooth partly because most dentists consider them to be the best treatments for replacing missing tooth.

Leigh Dental Centre is proud to be offering Dental implants to all suitable patients. A dental implant is a cylindrical and/​or tapered post usually made of titanium, which serves as a substitute for the tooth root.

The Benefits of Dental Implants include:

Built to last. Dental implants are a long-term solution. Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges only last five to seven years, and with proper care often more than 10 years, but at some point they may need to be replaced. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.

Protect healthy bone. Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing some teeth can lead to oral health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.

Helps you speak easily. Adjusting to dentures can make speaking and pronouncing some words difficult. This is not the case with dental implants because they function like normal teeth.

Safe. Implants are safe, reliable and tried and tested treatment. They will last as long as you take good care of them with occasional adjustments.


Considering that dental implants cost on average £1000 to 2500 per treatment and could last for many years it give you peace of mind to know that you would not have to spend that amount again on it if done professionally.

At Leigh Dental Centre we offer interest free credit to help our patients considering dental implants to spread the cost of that treatment. Our dentist are also highly experienced to provide this treatment. For more information on how dental implants work visit Dental Implants
