Dental implants let you get on with life, without compromise. If you already wear dentures, or are facing the prospect of losing your teeth, implants can have a truly transformative impact. With dental implants, you can take for granted the ability to taste and eat all foods; speak and laugh without fear of embarrassment; enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile with no discomfort; and avoid the ageing facial sagging that missing teeth can cause – so you’ll look younger for longer. As our many happy implant patients will attest, you can’t put a price on the improvement implants can have on quality of life and self-confidence.
Dental implant treatment options
Single tooth replacement
Often a single tooth is lost due to an accident and in these cases, which often occur in younger people, a dental implant is a reliable and stable option. A dental implant placed in this scenario does not require any preparation of the adjacent teeth – such as would be the case with a bridge.
Multiple teeth replacement
Dental implants can also be used to support multiple teeth. This usually involves the placement of two implants, which are used to support a fixed bridge.
A loose fitting denture is a common problem for traditional denture wearers. Securing dentures using dental implants restores functional chewing and reduces irritation of the gums, leading to an enhanced quality of life. The additional support enables the wearer to carry on their life with confidence, eat what they want and smile without being self-conscious.
