Dental Implants look, feel & work like real teeth
Teeth can be lost for all sorts of reasons from tooth decay and gum disease, to injury or accident, but whatever the reason, missing teeth can affect your confidence and ability to eat properly. It is always best to replace the missing tooth, rather than leave a gap, because the remaining teeth bear the extra force of chewing and can begin to wear, and the teeth can drift into the gap causing problems with your bite.
How can dental implants help?
Dental implants can replace one or more missing teeth and in a healthy person with a healthy mouth and bone, implant roots (the metal part) should last as long as natural teeth. Implants need caring for as natural teeth do and the crowns or bridges supported by the implants can last a decade or more.
