Here at LARA dental, we are massive advocates for dental implants and the major benefits they can provide to those who are missing teeth.
Missing one tooth or many teeth can be a source of embarrassment. it is also a potentially harmful scenario. Your oral health is hugely dependent on your teeth being present and it is one of the many reasons to consider dental implants. Dental implants are really the only permanent tooth replacement to consider if you are looking for a durable and efficient solution.
Dental implants have been around since the 1950’s and they are constantly evolving to give patients not only added comfort but better results as well. It is possible to bring back your smile with dental implants and to replace the functionality that was lost along with your teeth. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or whether you require a full mouth restoration, we will provide you with tailor-made treatment that will benefit your smile for many years to come.
In this article we will discuss the benefits of dental implants and why they should be seriously considered as a treatment for missing teeth. Even though adolescent dental implant treatments is far less prevalent than those of adults, they are an option for those patients who are in need.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an excellent treatment for missing teeth for a number of reasons – but let’s take a look at what exactly they are. Dental implants provide an artificial root upon which is placed a prosthetic, custom-made replica of your tooth. This method can be used to support either a single tooth or a full arch of teeth. A fixed and permanent treatment, dental implants replace both the form and function of your missing teeth while improving not only your oral health but your general health as well.
There are a variety of techniques and options from which to choose. Our dentists will work closely with you to ensure that the treatment options selected is the one that will give you the best results. Using a process known as osseo-integration, dental implants are fused into the bone in your jaw. After the surrounding area has healed sufficiently, we will then create your replacement tooth from highly durable materials that look and feel exactly like your natural teeth. This tooth is then placed onto the implant using an abutment and will work towards imbuing your smile with a harmony between all of its elements.

Dental implants allow you the freedom to smile as wide as you once did without being embarrassed by your missing teeth. They not only aid hugely in digestion, allowing you to chew foods properly, but also stimulate the jaw bone which would otherwise dissolve and cause the signs of premature ageing. The benefits of dental implants are two-fold in that they address both the form and function of your smile.
They are cleaned the same way that you would clean a normal tooth and require no added products or utensils to maintain. The modern dentistry materials used to create your new tooth or teeth are incredibly durable and a dental implant prosthesis should last you well over a decade or more.
