What Is A Dental Implant?

Do you have problems with your teeth? Whether they are loose, missing or you have problematic dentures or crowns, did you know that here at Shine Dental Care in Mansfield we can help with all of these problems with the placement of dental implants?

You may have heard about dental implants but be unsure as to exactly what they are or how they work. Read on to find out how dental implants can benefit you.

Dental implants are titanium structures

Dental implants are titanium structures which replace missing tooth roots. When competently placed they offer a very reliable, long-term replacement for missing teeth.

Once placed, the jawbone integrates with the new titanium ‘root’ over time, providing a solid foundation onto which a crown, bridge or denture can be placed.

Dental implants can therefore be used to replace one or several missing teeth. If one tooth is missing a single implant is usually sufficient. If there is a larger space the number of implants needed will depend on the quality of bone available, but often you do not need one implant per tooth.

If you decide to have dental implants you will undergo a detailed consultation to determine your treatment needs and the options available for you. The dentist will discuss the procedure, what to expect afterwards and any concerns you may have.

Once treatment is complete you can expect to eat a normal diet with little or no difficulty and if properly maintained you will have a healthy smile for many years.

If you have any further questions about dental implants or other cosmetic dentistry solutions, contact us today.
