The loss of one or more teeth can have a major impact on the function and shape of your mouth, as well as the appearance of your smile. Gaps in your teeth can also affect your ability to eat certain foods.
Not too long ago, the only solution for people who had lost some or all of their teeth was dentures. However, dentures cannot not be permanently fixed in the mouth and are often uncomfortable and cumbersome. Modern dentistry enables us to replace several, or all, the teeth by anchoring dental implants to a fixed bridge. You get natural-looking teeth that allow you to regain the full function of your mouth.
A dental Implant is made from titanium. It bonds to the jaw, much like the root of a natural tooth and permanently replaces a lost tooth. Dental implants can be fixed in anyone who is in good general health. They are put in place during a simple and short surgical procedure done under local anesthesia.
In cases where a single tooth and its root are damaged, dental implants offer a fast and easy solution to replace the tooth with minimum discomfort.
