Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. They can give you real boost in both your private and professional life, allowing you to eat, speak and smile with confidence. This is because losing one or more teeth creates a gap in your smile, which can affect your speech and your ability to enjoy your favourite foods. Loss of teeth con also affect your confidence, your sense of well-being and your oral hygiene can suffer. Also, when a tooth is lost the bone beneath it begins to shrink and becomes brittle. This loss of bone can cause shape of your face to change and this in turn can make you look much older. A dental implant placed in the area where a tooth is missing can actually stimulate bone growth thus preventing any loss of facial structure and maintaining a youthful appearance.
Dental implants will therefore help you because they:
A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and when bonded with the bone, serves as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.
