What are Dental Implants

Artificial Teeth

Dental Implants are artificial teeth, an artificial root is placed into your jaw and its job is to hold the replacement tooth.  This is brilliant for people who have lost a tooth, or even had gum disease, tooth decay or suffered because of an accident.

You need to have good bone in the jaw area, so that the root for the implant can be inserted.  In the short-term we will meet several times and take X-Rays, discuss your goal objectives and what you want from the denture implants.  You (the patient) will have an idea in your head of what you want the end result to look like.  The Dental Implants will look stunning, but its a long journey.  It can be tough emotionally as well as financially expensive.

Who is Suitable for Dental Implants?

If you are in good health, you could be considered a patient for denture implants.  It takes confidence to consider having denture implants as this is a permanent thing, once you start the process there is no going back.  You do still need to look after them, as they are artificial teeth and not indestructable.  Most Dentists are very helpful and will go through the treatments with you, they should be able to show you before and after images for patients that have been in the practice.  You can get teeth made from state of art materials. 

There is a misconception that you need to be old in age to have dentures, that is not the case.  If you have a missing tooth or teeth, you can get an appointment at your Dentist to discuss your options.  Investigate all treatment plans and ask about finance to give yourself plenty of options.

  • Dental Implants will be affordable, but if you feel they are too expensive, ask your Dentist what else is available.  There is nothing nicer than a beautiful smile.
