Teeth are crucial to both your everyday functioning and the appearance of your smile. They are a necessity for good verbal communication and mandatory for aesthetics, their status in all walks of life provides a benchmark to the lifestyle of the individual. Dental Implants are the latest technology in tooth replacement, allowing for a replacement tooth to be securely affixed in the mouth with a natural appearance and full functionality.
In the course of aging, teeth can be lost due to caries, gum diseases, or by accidents. Loss of a single front tooth may cause more embarrassment than the loss of multiple back teeth. The loss of a tooth can alter function, aesthetics, eating and your appearance.
Teeth substituted by implants mean that the tooth loss is effectively offset in both the root and crown areas. Implants, or what may otherwise be called “artificial tooth roots”, are anchored in the jaw bone to provide a stable foundation on which replacement teeth are firmly attached. In the event of tooth loss, implants can help preserve the gums and soft tissue surrounding the tooth and can also reduce the amount of bone loss by functional and adequate loading of the jaws. In many cases, the patient is spared the drawbacks of a removable denture
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
