Dental implants are the most effective way to replace missing teeth to achieve optimal functionality. They provide this function by replacing the root of your teeth with a screw-like implant to which a replacement crown, bridge or denture can be safely secured.
Depending on your oral circumstances, there are a number of different dental implant options that can be tailor-made to provide the full function of your mouth. An assessment of your oral state is necessary to provide a quote to suit.
These are often the preferred option to replace a single tooth over other treatments as they provide durability, functionality, and longevity. Several benefits stem from a singular dental implant over a bridge, the most prominent benefit being an implant removes the need to shape and shave down neighboring teeth in order to be fitted with a bridge.
Multiple dental implants are one of the most popular options among multiple tooth loss, as they provide a long term solution for missing teeth. With multiple dental implants, you can feel confident that your teeth will be replaced with a secure restoration.
To be suitable for dental implants you need to:
– be fit and of reasonable health
– have adequate jaw bone structure
– be free of gum disease or periodontitis
– avoid smoking where possible as this can hinder recovery time
The cost of dental implants will vary from one patient to another and will depend on the amount of jaw bone and gums that could hold a dental implant in place with long term results. Every patient undertaking dental implant treatment will need to have Cone Beam CT xray scan together with a thorough clinical exam to provide an estimated cost of the treatment.
