Dental implants have revolutionised the way we treat tooth loss.
If you need to replace your whole tooth, a dental implant is likely to be your best option. The dental implant (a biocompatible titanium rod) is inserted into the missing root of your tooth. ‘Biocompatible’ may sound a sound a little overly-scientific, but it basically means your body won’t reject the new implant. Over time, your jaw bone begins to fuse with the implant.
Why replace missing teeth with an implant?
While the look of a missing tooth is likely to be the greatest motivation for replacing a missing tooth, there are a number of serious medical issues that are often overlooked.
- When a tooth is lost, surrounding teeth will begin to merge causing distorted tooth structure
- Gum damage can occur as a result of the missing tooth
On top of this, the bone that was originally holding the tooth in place can shrink, meaning you will require a bone graft procedure prior to replacing the tooth. For this reason, it is important to act quickly after losing a tooth.
The benefits of choosing dental implants
Dental implants have revolutionised the way we look at tooth replacement. The contemporary treatment includes a number of benefits, including:
- The material structure of the implant avoids disturbing surrounding teeth
- Multiple teeth may be replaced at once
- Dental implants provide a permanent solution
