LARA dental is here to help you take back your smile and oral health with dental implant treatment
Whether you are young or old, a missing tooth can be a harrowing experience. We can lose our teeth for a number of reasons, but it is never too late to seek treatment.
Dental implant surgery is one of the most effective ways to treat tooth loss and to improve dental and general health.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are essentially artificial teeth that can look and behave just the same as your normal teeth. By anchoring these implants into your bone, they mimic the root of a tooth. They can be used to replace either one or multiple teeth at a time. This fusion of dental implants into the space vacated is known as ‘osseo-integration’ and was first discovered in the 1960’s. Since then it has been evolving to include a wide variety of treatments and techniques.
Once the implant has been placed, a short recovery time may be needed, after which the replacement tooth or teeth are then attached to the implant itself. The artificial tooth is tailor-made to give the appearance and functionality of natural teeth. Dental implants contribute to the improvement of your oral health by stimulating the bone in your jaw and prevent it from dissolving.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implant Surgery
Not only do dental implants replace your missing teeth in both form and function, they also directly benefit your general health as well. It is important to stop further tooth and bone deterioration. This is where dental implants come in and are widely held as the most effective treatment for missing teeth.
By preserving the bone underneath, dental implants help to prevent the dissolving of the jawbone and the general collapse in the structure of the face. Dental implants can even help to give you a more youthful appearance by reducing some of the visible effects of ageing. In some cases, dental implant treatment can be completed in a single procedure and the result is something that can last you the rest of your lifetime with proper care.
