What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and have been a successful option for several decades.
The implant is a small titanium alloy screw which connects a replacement tooth to the jawbone. Dental implants allow for strong, permanent, natural-looking replacement teeth.
Not only do they offer you the opportunity to improve the aesthetic of your mouth and smile, they also provide a high-quality solution to patients who have lost teeth through a sporting accident, or gum disease, or significant dental decay.
They Look And Feel Just Like The Real Thing
Dental implants are designed to be as close to natural teeth as possible in structure and appearance. You – or anyone else – won’t be able to tell the difference.
You will be able to speak, smile and eat with confidence.
High Success Rate, Lasting Effect
If you’re tired of having to return to the dentist because of nagging dental issues, implants may be the best option for the long term. The vast majority of implants are successful and give patients decades of quality wear.
Perfect Solution after a Root Canal
Dental implants can be a perfect solution after a root canal. With root canal procedures the entire tooth and its roots are removed, leaving a void in your jawbone. Over time these voids degrade the strength of your jaw. With dental implants, the implant fills that void and strengthens the overall structure of your jaw.
Eat Confidently and Without Pain
Anyone who’s ever suffered with brittle teeth, dental sensitivity or a cavity knows how painful and difficult eating and drinking can be. Unlike dentures, dental implants provide the strength and grip to allow you to bite through and chew anything with confidence and no pain.
Zero Decay Issues
While natural teeth are subject to several potential risks of decay, implants are structurally resilient and won’t become brittle or develop cavities over time. Zero decay!
It’s a Fairly Painless Procedure
While the thought of it probably sounds daunting, dental implant procedures are less painful than a tooth extraction. You’ll also heal much quicker and be able to return to normal life in almost no time after the procedure.
There’s no point beating about the bush: dental implants are not cheap.
The important thing to remember is that dental implants last a lifetime and replacing a tooth now can prevent further problems down the road.
Not to mention you will avoid that awful feeling and inconvenience of getting food stuck in the gap – or other chewing and tooth alignment issues if teeth shift in your mouth.
Your health insurance may be able to help contribute to the cost of your dental implants. So be sure to check in with them and also talk to us about whether it’s the right option for you.
Dental implants can be a great investment but they aren’t suitable for everyone (including smokers, pregnant women and teeth grinders). So if an implant is NOT right for your personal circumstances, you may need to speak to us about an alternative solution.
