Recently a man came to Dental Health Centre for a free consultation. He had lost the majority of his teeth through gum disease. He rarely smiled but more importantly he could not eat every day foods without pain and some foods he could not eat at all. After having implants placed he is a changed man. He smiles with confidence and is now able to eat any food he chooses, even an apple!
So what are dental implants? An implant is a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of missing tooth or teeth. A crown is put onto the implant. There are many advantages to having implants. Unlike dentures there is no slippage or movement plus there is no cheap phentermine need to touch any of the surrounding teeth to secure the implant into the mouth unlike bridgework or partial dentures. Also dental implants will help to maintain the shape and structure of the jawbone because when teeth are missing the bone begins to shrink. They are durable, strong and look great.
