Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing and broken teeth. If you’re tired of using removable dentures or a bridge, dental implants are a long-term solution. Dental implants cannot be removed unless you visit your dentist, and with advances in technology, they now look more realistic than ever.
A dental implant is a special screw that’s inserted into the jawbone, on which a replacement tooth is set. Although the process of having dental implants installed can involve several operations, patients usually agree that dental implants look far better than missing or broken teeth.
How do dental implants work?
- A hole is drilled into your jawbone during an operation.
- A post is fitted into your jawbone, once healed a special cap called an “abutment” is attached to the post.
- A false tooth will then be attached to the abutment.
- If cared for properly, dental implants should last for the remainder of your life.
The decision to have dental implants is not one to be taken lightly, however they do bring significant advantages. Unlike dentures and bridges, the rest of your teeth are unlikely to suffer side effects of the implants, and implants aid with the chewing of food and also your speech.
