Whether you’re missing one tooth or many, this can affect your health and quality of life. So if you’re missing some yourself, dental implants can be your best possible option.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are used to replace missing teeth while supporting your bone to keep it strong. An implant consists of a small titanium screw that is installed into your jawbone. This provides a safe and robust base on which to attach your artificial tooth.
While having dental implants require that you undergo dental surgery and the idea of a metal into your bone can be daunting, fear not. Your dental implant dentist will use anaesthesia and sedation to ensure that the procedure is painless and you are as comfortable as possible.
The result of dental implants looks just like your natural teeth. Your dentist can customize the tooth material so that it is shaped and coloured just like the rest of your teeth. This guarantees a beautiful, even smile that you can be more confident about.
More importantly, dental implants can provide you a better quality of life. You can talk better and more clearly. Your appearance will also take on a youthful look because your new teeth will hold up your jaw and your facial muscles. You also enjoy chewing and biting on your favourite foods because dental implants can also function just like your natural teeth.
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, so a relatively short procedure can definitely go a long way.
