What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a safe and effective way of replacing missing teeth in Bristol. Dental implants are strongly recommended by the dental professional as a reliable way of replacing teeth.

A dental implant is a small metal screw, usually titanium, placed in the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. Crowns, bridges and dentures are then fixed onto the screw, which gives a more natural look and greater stability. Dental implants could be a great confidence booster, and they stimulate the bone to grow around the metal and along with this, small blood vessels are also stimulated to regrow. This means you can eat, chew and bite as normal and could also stop that sunken look that comes with jaw deterioration due to a missing tooth.

The benefits of dental implants

Dental implants also stop the deterioration of your remaining teeth that happens when one or more teeth are missing. They also fill out your cheeks again, banishing the worn-out look that missing teeth and bone loss bring, making you appear older than you really are.

Dental implants also help restore the normal function, comfort and aesthetics of your teeth and jaw, and help avoid associated general health and even self-esteem problems. Replacing ill-fitting dentures with dental implants can also prevent gradual bone loss.

What are dental implants?

Dental Implants are fitted into the jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth. Once the implant has settled in replacement teeth, crowns and bridges can be screwed onto them. The bone grows around and meshes with the metal screw, making it even more stable. Dental implants are more stable for biting and chewing, and can be cleaned like normal teeth.
