Why Choose Dental Implants to Replace Lost Teeth?

If you have a missing tooth, you may be a suitable candidate for dental implants. An implant looks and behaves just like a natural tooth and is a permanent solution. A small titanium screw is placed where your own tooth is missing and a porcelain tooth is fitted on top. If you have one or more missing teeth, here are our top reasons to choose dental implants: 

They look like natural teeth

One benefit of implants is that they look very natural. Few other solutions look as good due to the composition of the porcelain tooth and the way it is fixed in the mouth. It is likely that nobody but you will notice that you have the implant due to its convincingness. 

They don’t move

Once the porcelain tooth is fitted, it will not move as it is screwed into your jaw bone. This means there will not be restrictions on what food you can eat like those that can apply to dentures. 

They are a permanent solution

Dental implants can last a lifetime if they are looked after well. With regular dental check ups, you should not have issues. Get into contact with us for more information. 

Dental Implants feel like natural teeth

A great benefit of implants is that they feel and act like normal teeth do. After they have been fitted, you will not have to worry about them and you can go about your day with confidence. Furthermore, they will not discolour. 

The implants cause no damage to surrounding teeth

A reason to choose dental implants is that they do not damage the surrounding teeth, as the porcelain tooth is not dependent on them. This is unlike dentures and bridgework. So with implants you can have peace of mind that your neighbouring teeth will not be affected. 

They are easy to look after 

With other replacement tooth procedures, you may have to use special treatments. With this procedure, you can avoid any extra work, all you have to do is keep brushing as you normally would. Furthermore, porcelain teeth do not discolour, so you will have to pay for whitening treatments.
