Dental Implants

Dental implants – still not convinced?

Published on 12/01/2017

Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. The titanium screw is inserted into the jaw bone and is used to support a crown, bridge or denture depending on the number of teeth to be replaced.

Still not sure that dental implants are the right choice for you? In this blog, we look at the benefits of choosing dental implants to replace a missing tooth.

Benefits of dental implants

  • Dental implants are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth, restoring a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.
  • Dental implants are built to last. Although they may need occasional adjustment, if cared for properly they should last for at least 10 years.
  • Dental implants allow you to live life to the full, without worrying about your teeth.
  • Dental implants help to retain the natural shape of your face and smile.
  • Dental implants protect the bone in your jaw and preventing bone loss as well as helping to stimulate the growth of new bone.
  • Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth.
  • Dental implants function like normal teeth so will allow you to speak with ease, unlike with dentures where it can take time to learn to pronounce everyday words.
  • Dental implants are fixed in place so you do not need to worry about them moving when you eat, talk, laugh, smile, kiss, yawn or cough.
  • Dental implants allow you to eat a full and varied diet, without hesitation.
  • Dental implants provide protection against cavities as it is not possible to get cavities in an implant restored crown, denture or bridge. It is however necessary to attend for regular dental appointments to ensure that your other teeth remain healthy.
  • Dental implants protect your healthy teeth. Dental implants are independent restorations so do not impact your remaining teeth. They also help prevent healthy teeth from shifting into an empty space, which would happen if the gap way left for a prolonged period of time.
