Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing or damaged teeth. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or as full upper or lower arch replacements. The process involves permanently fixing an artificial tooth or teeth into your jaw. Under anesthetic, titanium screws are surgically fixed into the jawbone. These screws are used to anchor a single crown or as a support unit for bridge work or removable dentures. Once fixed in place, the implants will look and feel like (and have the strength of) natural teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Implants are a permanent and fixed dental solution, making them an ideal long-term solution for tooth replacement. However, since implants are major dental work, we will always look to save your natural teeth before considering implant therapy.
Process Of Getting Dental Implants
To be considered for implants, all existing urgent dental conditions, like dental decay and gum disease, will need to be managed. A thorough evaluation of your medical history is paramount to ensure success rates are as high as possible. Generally, smokers present with less favorable healing rates and so it is generally recommended that all smokers should avoid smoking for advised times before and after the procedures.
