Why Dental Implants?
The perfect solution for missing teeth or failing teeth
Dental Implants are widely used to replace and support missing teeth or failing teeth that require extraction from the mouth. Dental implants are a titanium screw that is used to replace the root of a tooth when it fails, acting as a secure anchor point for false, natural looking replacement teeth.
Just like a natural tooth root, dental implants are secured into the jawbone and are a more secure and long lasting solution than traditional dentures. Dental implants provide many benefits for the patient over the traditional tooth replacement options such as dentures and dental bridges and can often provide lifelong results.
“I had dentures prior to having the implants which were causing me a little bit of discomfort, so I decided to go with the implants and I’ve not regretted it”
Terry, Dental Implant Patient
Single Missing Teeth
A dental implant can have many benefits for the replacement of a single missing tooth over the more traditional option of a dental bridge. Unlike a dental bridge, a dental implant has little impact on the health of other teeth and looks and performs like a natural tooth. In dental bridge treatment the common practise is for adjacent teeth to be ground down in order to support the cemented bridge, this is not the case with a single dental implant as the implant anchors the tooth into the jaw bone, not your other teeth.
The dental implant is inserted into the jaw bone to replace the tooth root, meaning that the bone remains better preserved. With a dental bridge the bone that previously surrounded the tooth can begin to deteriorate, a single dental implant will integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the underlying bone healthy and free from deterioration.

Large Gaps in Teeth
For dental patients with more than one missing tooth or a large gap in their teeth with no neighbouring teeth to anchor a more conventional bridge onto, dental implants can be used in the same way as when a single tooth is replaced. Dental implants can be used to replace the root of the original teeth and used as an anchor to attach an aesthetically accurate dental bridge.
Dental implants can also be used to replace missing front teeth where patients have had to have these removed or to replace missing back teeth to make chewing and eating much easier. For more information on how a dental implant can help repair a large gap in your front or back teeth please feel free to arrange a free dental implant consultation.
Patients who have full or part dentures will be pleased to know that dentures can now be held securely in place with dental implants, providing a massively improved solution over traditional removable dentures. Implant retained dentures mean there is no more need for denture adhesives, pastes, sticky gum or powders as the dentures are held securely in place my dental implants anchored to the patients jaw bone.
