Dental implants are another alternative to replace missing teeth.
• Missing teeth
• Teeth shifting to fill a gap or space, leading to bite malalignment and jaw joint problems
• Desire to improve chewing ability
• Desire for a more permanent solution than dentures
A dental implant is an appliance used to replace the roots of teeth. Predominantly made from titanium, dental implants are strong, durable and biocompatible. Dental implants are surgically attached to the jaw bone by a dental specialist. An artificial tooth is attached to the top of the implant, creating a natural-looking, cosmetically superior replacement for the missing tooth.
In the event that more than one tooth is missing, several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who have no remaining natural teeth. This can greatly improve chewing ability.
Once the site for the implant has been sterilised, the implant is placed and left for a couple of months to heal and bond with the surrounding ligaments and bone. This creates a solid foundation to affix a crown or bridge. If you are suffering from tooth loss, please contact our team at AMK Dental Clinic to arrange a consultation and discuss your options.
