Dental implants may be the solution you’re looking for to help improve your smile and confidence
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are basically a titanium metal rod which is inserted into the jaw bone. It is then used to support one or more false teeth, which is the ‘dental implant’. Implants are permanent and you can have any number of teeth replaced, from one single tooth to a complete set.
They are suitable for most people and can be used to replace missing or natural teeth as a cosmetic option.
Dental Implants for Denture Wearers
For the denture wearer, dental implants will put an end to loose or poor fitting dentures. If you are discontented with wearing dentures and want to feel more confident when talking or have difficulty keeping them stable, then you are ideal for this type of treatment.
You may find that wearing unsecured dentures makes you feel awkward and is inconvenient to the lifestyle that you lead. Well there are now a variety of modern dental implant based tooth replacement solutions available to you.
Removable implant over dentures – provide stability where new teeth are attached to two or more dental implants, making this a cost effective option. You can chew with confidence a variety of foods and your sense of taste is unaffected. Your teeth can be removed for cleaning and there is NO need for denture adhesives.
Removable over dentures on an implant bar – for an even more secure fit, a dental bar is fixed to your jaw bone with two more implants, providing stronger support for your removable dentures. Your new teeth can be removed for cleaning and again there is NO need for adhesives.
Fixed implant supported bridges – a more durable solution with natural looking replacement teeth, secured on four or more dental implants. This solution stimulates bone maintenance, restores chewing function and maintains taste sensation.
