Dental implants are one of the most popular options for missing teeth replacement. It is important to replace teeth for both aesthetic and functional reasons, and dental implants are an extraordinary long-term solution for both.
An implant is essentially an artificial tooth root made of titanium, which is gently inserted into the jaw bone. Once it has been placed, it can support a crown, denture or bridge and is therefore a stable, life-long solution for missing teeth.
At Crown Street Dental Group we provide three types of dental implant: single tooth implants, multiple tooth implants and implant retained dentures.
If you only have one missing tooth, we can use a single tooth implant to fill the gap. The new tooth will be created to match your existing teeth, providing an undetectable result.
If you’ve lost several teeth due to illness or accident, we can place multiple tooth implants with a permanent fixed bridge. This firm bridge will make it possible to easily eat, talk and laugh just as you would with a natural set of teeth.
Dental implants can also be used to provide support for dentures. The procedure for implant retained dentures involves attaching the dentures to artificial roots, giving you the functionality and stability to eat and talk without having to worry about your dentures coming loose.
There are plenty of benefits to having dental implants. Placing an implant into an area where bone has been lost will actually slow down bone loss. Also, teeth-cleaning can resume easily and your smile will function properly whilst looking lovely and natural.
If you are interested in dental implants, we will need to assess both the quantity and quality of your bone tissue first. We will also need to take X-rays and a CT scan in order to provide you with a precise treatment plan. To find out more, book a consultation today.
