If you have missing teeth, dental implants can help to restore your natural smile. But what are dental implants and how much will they set you back? Read on to learn more.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the modern solution to missing teeth. They are the next best thing to real teeth and provide better long-term value than conventional temporary teeth replacement options like dentures.
Dental implants are a secure and permanent treatment that look and feel like natural teeth. Small titanium rods are inserted into the cavity of your jawbone. The bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse with the rod, securing the implant in place. Finally, a crown or bridge is fitted to create a natural-looking smile with long-lasting results.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are a permanent and natural solution to missing teeth. They look, feel and behave like real teeth. You’ll be able to eat, talk and laugh with confidence.
Dental implants also help to preserve bone strength and promote a healthy facial structure. When you lose a tooth, the jaw can weaken, making it hard to chew. Temporary solutions like dentures don’t address this problem: once you lose a tooth, only permanent dental implants can help to preserve your jaw strength.
Dental implants are easy to clean and care for. There is no need to remove them – in fact, you won’t be able to, as they are permanent solutions. Just like natural teeth, they should be brushed with toothpaste twice a day.
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental implant prices depend on the type of treatment you’ll need and the number of teeth you want to replace. A typical treatment can start from around £2,300.
