1. Dental implants look like natural teeth

Listing this as one point hardly does it justice. It is a major benefit. Once treatment is completed, the result looks completely natural and will be visually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Ceramic implants are ivory-colored, like a natural tooth root, providing an aesthetically pleasing alternative to metal implants.

3. They are durable – often lasting a lifetime

Dental implants have a 98% success rate and the manner in which they work, becoming part of your jawbone, gives them unrivalled durability. If you maintain good oral hygiene and keep to regular dental check-ups following this treatment, there is a good chance the implant will last a lifetime.

5. Your quality of life won’t be affected (it may even be improved!)

As your dentist we recommend maintaining a healthy diet and limiting sugar, but whatever you choose to eat, your dental implant will not hinder you. Implant teeth allow you to eat, speak and smile with complete confidence because they will never slip or shift like removable options often do.

6. They can prevent bone loss

Tooth loss inevitably leads to bone loss if the tooth is not replaced. Unlike other replacement options, dental implants can help stimulate the bone to rebuild itself and stay healthy by fusing to the jawbone and stabilizing it. You may wonder why this prevention of bone loss matters. It helps to keep the jaw and gums strong, reducing the likelihood of fractures and other oral health problems developing and affecting the rest of the mouth.

8. Dental implants can replace any number of teeth

If two or more teeth are missing, the gaps need to be closed as quickly as possible to avoid mispositioning of the teeth and jawbone. Implant-supported bridges and partial dentures supported by dental implants offer more stability than conventional dentures.

10. The process is tried and tested

At The Dental Surgery, we have fitted over 20,000 dental implants. This is a popular, common procedure that is proven to deliver lasting, long-term results, boosting oral health and addressing the aesthetic issues of a missing tooth or teeth.
