What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the latest technology dentists use as a solution for missing teeth. Until a few years ago, the only alternatives available were Dentures of Dental Bridges. Dental Implants are perhaps the best solution to missing teeth as they replace not just the top of the tooth but also the tooths root structure which prevents issues that may occur under the gum line of a missing tooth.
As well as a strong solution above the gum, bone cells in your jaw grow around the dental implant which fuses over time to become a natural part of your mouth. The result is a solution that allows you to eat and chew food normally as well as keeping your overall jaw and bone structure in good condition. This is why Dental Implants have a lifetime success rate of over 95%.
