Teeth are a complicated part of our bodies. While some of us seem to be blessed with naturally healthy teeth, others of us seem predisposed to dental problems and as such, damage and decay are a virtually unavoidable part of life. Modern dentistry has come a very long way, but unfortunately there are still occasions when a tooth is so badly damaged that it cannot be saved. This once would have meant leaving you with an unsightly gap in your smile. The more teeth you needed removed, the greater the number of gaps you would have had, which would have affected not only your confidence, but also the overall functionality of your mouth and jaw. However, thanks to innovations in dentistry there is now another option
– dental implants.
Dental implants are the latest way of replacing teeth that have either fallen out or need to be removed. Titanium screws are inserted into the jaw where they are left to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. Once this has happened, a crown can be secured to the implant using a fixture called an abutment. Once the complete implant is in place, you will be able to use your mouth, teeth and jaw as normal.
