Dental implants are an excellent long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They provide durable results that restore full functionality and leave you with a natural looking, aesthetically pleasing smile. Missing teeth may affect your speech and ability to chew, and often cause insecurity and embarrassment in many people. Dental implants are a modern form of tooth replacement technology that can boost your confidence and restore your mouth’s functionality.
Dental implants act as an artificial tooth root. It is usually made of titanium which is very strong and readily accepted by human tissues. The implant is inserted into the jaw and then left for around 3 to 4 months for the bone to integrate with the implant. After the bone has integrated with the implant, the treatment is completed with a finely sculpted replacement tooth known as a crown that is screwed onto the implant by your dentist. The result is a very strong, durable and natural looking replacement tooth that functions and appears just like a real tooth.
