A dental implant is a small part made of titanium or titanium zirconium which is placed in a jaw bone in place of the missing natural tooth root. The implant can be surgically inserted under local anesthetic on an outpatient basis. Titanium is generally well tolerated by the human body, and bone has been shown to bond well to titanium. Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual crowns and multi-tooth bridges. The implant can also be used as an anchor to an entire dental prosthesis.
Here are five good reasons for choosing dental implants:
Function and visual appearance go hand in hand: dental implants were developed to offer reliable stability, plus the solution of implants looks natural.
Implants transmit chewing forces to the jaw, which helps to maintain the bone. If there is no implant, as with conventional bridges or partial prostheses, the bone may slowly recede and the shape of the face may change over time.
The dental plates often required with conventional dentures may case pressure points and other inconveniences. With dental implant therapy, such dental plates are not necessary. Therefore, patients may experience more comfort when talking, smiling and eating.
With a conventional bridge, the healthy neighbouring teeth to the right and left of the missing tooth have to be ground down to support the bridge. When using an implant to close the gap, the neighbouring teeth are not affected and the natural surface remains intact.
