“Cover your mouth when you cough. Never cover your mouth when you smile”.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are made of titanium, a light but strong material and are surgically placed into your jawbone as an anchor for the replacement of missing teeth. You can have a number of teeth replaced with an implant or implants, from one tooth to a complete set. Benefits of implants include:
1. Improved aesthetics, function and confidence;
2. The procedure is minimally invasive;
3. Implants are a more reliable, cost effective and satisfactory option than other forms of tooth replacement;
4. Implants provide a stable foundation for your new teeth. Whilst some tooth replacement options such as dentures move about, especially during meals, implants are anchored to the bone in your jaw like natural teeth, and therefore are more firmly placed and do not prevent you from eating as you would if you had healthy, natural teeth.
