Dental Implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Implants closely mimic the look and function of
real teeth. They are a preferred aesthetic alternative to dentures and bridges. Dental implant techniques can replace one or several missing teeth.
Once in place, the implant can be used to attach different types of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges or dentures.
Why choose a Dental Implant
Whether you are missing a tooth, several teeth or all your teeth, dental implants are a permanent way to replace them without having to involve any of your other surrounding teeth.
When one tooth is lost; If you have one tooth missing, a single crown on an implant is generally the best way to restore your chewing function and natural appearance.
When multiple teeth are lost; If several of your teeth are missing, a bridge or crown supported by several implants is a great choice. This option will restore function and looks.
When all teeth have been lost; Many people believe if all of your teeth were missing in the upper
and lower jaw your only options would be full upper and lower dentures. Dental implants are without a doubt the most effective and most comfortable
solution to this issue. The options include either a full bridge supported by implants or a denture retained by implants. A full bridge is fixed to
five or more implants and can only be removed by the dentist. The implant supported denture is connected via attachments to two or more implants allowing
the denture to be removed by you. When in place the denture is firmly attached to the implants and there is no risk of it coming loose. The exact treatment
option depends on your individual case and personal preference. Nick and Dan, together with one of our dental specialists will tailor your treatment
plan accordingly. The type and amount of bone, as well as functional conditions will all play a role. Whether you have an implant bridge or implant
supported denture you will be able to speak, chew and smile with confidence.
