If one or more of your teeth are missing, there are a number of ways to replace them. An alternative to bridges, partials or complete dentures may be dental implants. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth.
The loss of one or more teeth can have a major impact on the function and shape of your mouth and the appearance of your smile:
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. Bone naturally integrates with dental implants to anchor replacement teeth in place. So you’ll never have to worry about loose, wobbly, ill-fitting prosthetics. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
If you are in good general health, have healthy gums and have enough bone in the jaw to hold an implant, dental implants might be right for you. If your jawbone has shrunk or if it has not developed normally, you may be able to have a bone graft to build up the bone. A bone graft is a way of adding new bone to your jawbone. Your dentist or dental specialist will tell you if bone grafting can be done.
