Do you have a missing tooth? It can really affect your self-confidence and make you feel embarrassed to smile, particularly if it’s in a noticeable place.

There is a solution, dental implants, are a great way to replace missing teeth. Below we explain the process and examine some of the benefits of dental implants:-

Dental Implants – How do they work?

A dental implant in simple terms acts as your tooth root. A titanium post is surgically positioned into your jawbone beneath the gum line, and this new ‘root’ allows the dentist to add replacement teeth or a bridge to that area.

Benefits of dental implants

Good overall health is important when your dentist is considering dental implants for you. Patients who are heavy smokers or who have diabetes have a greater risk of developing gum disease or infections following the implant surgery. The general health of the gums and jawbone will be the main factors taken into consideration when deciding if dental implants are right for you.

Over 95% of implants are successful, and with good levels of oral hygiene and regular long-term care, the dental implants can last for over 15 years.
