Generally an implant would be the right solution in cases where a patient has overall good dental health but due to an accident, decay, root canal problems or trauma has resulted in the loss of a tooth or teeth. The process of implants can be lengthy, treatment comprises generally of two stages one in which root form (often called an abutment) is placed in the jaw by doing some minor surgery and the next stage is where an artificial tooth or teeth is placed on the new root form. The treatment might take many sittings and many hours with your dentist. Continued oral hygiene is still required and still of major importance Implants are extremely popular due to the major benefits:

  • Unlike previously traditional “dentures” having a dental implant is fixed in the jaw in a way that it functions just like a normal tooth. They can be undertaken for single tooth or multiple teeth and the results are often unnoticeably different from the natural teeth.
  • Dental implants are fixed in the jaw which helps to keep bones intact and thereby jaw bones healthier and less chance of becoming shrunken and disappearing over a period of time.
  • The way in which Dental implants are fixed they can share the load across adjoining teeth therefore avoiding wear and tear to teeth on either side of the implant/s.
  • As Dental implants are a permanent fixed solution for missing teeth, they relieve the patient from pains of removing, cleaning and maintaining the health of removable dentures.
  • Dental implants take away the everyday worry of loose removable Dentures and the security of available fixing agents
  • Dental implants support other dental prostheses together with bridges, dentures and crowns.
