Tamworth Dental Implant Clinic
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants, or tooth implants represent the highest standard of care in restoring your missing teeth. Think of dental implants like a prosthetic tooth root. It is made of medical grade titanium and is placed where your tooth roots would naturally sit.
Your natural bone then integrates with your implant, creating an extremely strong bond. Once the implant is healed, we have the option of placing a porcelain crown on top or we can actually clip a denture onto it!
Implants can replace one missing tooth, can be used to support a bridge (multiple teeth), or be used to stabilise dentures!
Advantages of Dental Implants
- Appearance and function! Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
- Tooth-saving: Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighbouring teeth are not used to support the implant. Your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health! Not to mention its much easier to clean.
- Confidence: Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence. They are shaped like teeth so your tongue and muscles aren't affected like they are with dentures, which are bulky and often affect your speech and function. With implants, you can eat whatever you want, laugh and live life knowing they are secure!
- Reliable: The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement and in many cases can have a longer lifespan with less damage to adjacent teeth than bridges.
