Dental Treatment For Missing Teeth

2013 July 17

Dental Implants are one of the solutions available for the replacement of lost or missing teeth.

Whether you have lost a tooth or teeth due to dental decay or disease, as a result of old age or due to an accident or injury, your dentist should be able to offer you suitable options to replace the gaps left as a result of tooth loss.

Other than dental implants, your dentist may suggest a denture or a bridge as these dental treatment options can be used to replace missing teeth, however dental implants are growing in popularity as they are a good long term solution and feel like real teeth and can also help preserve health tissue around surrounding teeth when carried out correctly.

So what is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial substitute for a tooth but it looks and feels like a real tooth. It is usually made from titanium and is placed into your jawbone to securely hold in place a denture or to support a crown and bridge fitted over it.

A dental implant can replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or can be used to carry out a full mouth reconstruction to replace an entire mouth of missing teeth.

It is crucial to visit the best dentist you can find for treatments such as dental implants and one who is qualified, trained and well experienced at carrying out this treatment.

You will require a thorough assessment to ensure you are a suitable candidate for dental implants and to ensure you have sufficient oral bone to allow your dental implant to integrate and be held in place securely over the long term.
