What is a Dental Implant and Why Get Multiple Implants Now?
If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental implant is the most advanced way to restore it, artificially replacing your tooth with a small titanium post. The post is inserted directly into the jawbone during a short surgical procedure. We can use dental implants to support single crowns, bridges or even full-arch dentures.
The sooner you have dental implants, the sooner you could benefit from this long-lasting treatment so why put up with multiple missing teeth any longer?
- Halt Bone Loss: After teeth are extracted your jawbone will begin to reabsorb and this can make it difficult to place implants without first replacing bone with a graft. Most of this resorption occurs in the first year after tooth loss which is why we always recommend getting dental implants soon after teeth are removed. Dental implants halt bone loss by replicating natural teeth roots.
- Protect Your Remaining Natural Teeth: Dental implants will help protect your natural teeth by spreading the forces created during eating and by preventing them from moving out of position. Tooth movements can affect your bite and is yet another reason why it is so important to replace teeth as soon as you can.
- Restore Your Smile: Your new implant teeth will allow you to smile and eat with complete confidence. Treatments using multiple implants will ensure your cheeks and lips are fully supported and will restore your correct facial dimensions to create a pleasingly natural appearance so no-one need know you ever lost any teeth.
What are the Advantages of Choosing Dental Implants?
Dental implants are self-supporting and will have only beneficial effects on your dental health. The implant post protects your bone, preventing bone deterioration. Implant-retained teeth provide the correct support for your facial muscles and prevent remaining natural teeth from shifting position.
Will My Implant Teeth Look and Feel Natural?
Here at Apple Dental, we use computer guidance when planning and placing our implants. This ensures your implants are inserted into precisely the right location, using a key-hole surgical technique that is smoother and faster. Computer guidance provides a more successful treatment, so that once your implants are restored with a crown, bridge or denture, they will look natural while being fully functional. If you require implant crowns, we can generally create these using CEREC CAD/CAM technology and which provides precision-fitted and highly aesthetic restorations and reducing the number of appointments required.
