Dental Implants Miranda

Tooth loss is common and can occur due to trauma or dental disease. Whatever the reason, it is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Traditional options include dentures and tooth-supported bridges, but neither is permanent. Dentures can become uncomfortable to wear and offer reduced biting strength, meaning many people will struggle to eat their favourite foods. Tooth-supported bridges mean we must grind down healthy teeth to support these restorations, which can compromise their health, especially in the longer term.

Dental implants offer a long-term solution and are increasingly regarded as the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. With the right aftercare, dental implants can last for many years, and it is not unusual to have them for life, so they are an excellent investment in your dental health and smile. They are comfortable, look and feel natural and restore your ability to eat and talk confidently.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant replaces a tooth artificially, including the tooth root extracted when you lose a natural tooth. An implant consists of a small screw or post placed into the jawbone, which soon becomes fused into the bone around it. Dental implants are unique because they mimic a real tooth root, stimulating the bone surrounding them and preventing bone loss that occurs naturally after tooth loss, so jawbone density is maintained. Maintaining good jawbone density is important as this helps protect your facial structure and jaw joints.

A Versatile Treatment

Dental implants can replace single or multiple teeth and may be restored with implant crowns or bridges. Complete arches of teeth can be restored with a fixed implant bridge or an implant-supported denture.
