Dental implants explained

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace natural teeth that have been lost. They are longer lasting than removable dentures, need less maintenance, and will perform as well, if not better, than your natural teeth. An implant is composed of a titanium screw embedded in the jawbone (taking the place of the tooth root), to which a dental restoration such as a crown or bridge is attached – taking the place of the tooth itself.

The implant is surgically inserted in the jawbone, then given time to fully integrate with the tissue surrounding it. A healing period is normally necessary before the attachment of the restoration (in the form of a dental crown or bridge) to the implant itself – which is your replacement tooth. An implant-retained crown looks completely natural, and feels very comfortable. At Improve Your Smile we use the Ankylos system, a method for anchoring implants right into the jawbone. This makes for a more streamlined process than many other systems; it also offers a high level of security for the dentures.

A dental implant may also have the dental restoration attached to it within the same day (‘teeth in a day‘). Learn more about same-day implants here.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants enable missing teeth to be replaced with permanent restorations, and can improve the appearance of your whole face as well as your smile. Sunken cheeks and lip areas are filled out for a much healthier look, and the unsightly gaps when you smile will be gone. Speech improvement is another frequent benefit of implants. Tooth-loss – or ill-fitting dentures – often cause speech to be unclear, but with implants, diction and pronunciation return to normal. Having an implant will halt or even prevent bone deterioration after tooth-loss. Implants are durable, long-lasting, and have an excellent success rate.

Would implants be suitable for me?

Dental implants are the ideal solution for those who have sufficient jawbone mass – necessary to provide a firm anchor for the implants. Your jawbone mass will be assessed at your consultation. If your jawbone is not considered robust enough to take the implants as it is, you may benefit from advanced supporting procedures such as a sinus grafting, bone grafting or other treatments.
