What is a dental implant?
Implants are one of the best ways to replace a missing teeth. Normal teeth have a membrane holding them into the jaw whilst dental implants are inserted via a straightforward surgical treatment and are then left to fuse with the jawbone.
Missing teeth do not present too much hassle at the onset, but as time goes on, missing teeth can cause your facial features to droop and cause your other teeth to shift out of position, creating gaps where bacteria can easily settle and cause gum disease.
Missing teeth also impede your ability to chew food properly, which means your digestion is also affected if left untreated.
You should replace a missing tooth when:
· Suffered an accident where your teeth have been knocked out.
· You have badly cracked your tooth.
· If your tooth’s root is decaying and dying.
The advantages of dental implants:
· They’re a ‘long-lasting’ solution.
· You can eat your favourite foods again.
· They look like your natural teeth.
