Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants


Rather than fitting dentures or dental bridges, a dentist might recommend dental implants to patients who are missing teeth. This is because implants are permanently fixed into the jawbone and act, look and feel just like the natural teeth they replace.

Implants can be colour-matched to the surrounding teeth and can last for many years – with good care, for a lifetime. However, not all patients are suitable candidates for dental implants as certain requirements must be met. These include:

Sufficient Bone Density – Implants are securely attached to metal posts which are inserted into the jawbone so it is imperative that the bone density is sufficient for this purpose.

Good Dental Health – Existing dental conditions such as gum disease or tooth decay may prevent a dentist from fitting dental implants until these issues have been remedied.

Avoiding Tobacco Products – Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco increases the likelihood of dental implants failing as the chemicals in tobacco adversely affect the healing process.

Dental implants are still possible for patients with poor bone density but a bone graft will be required prior to fitting so the jaw will be able to support an implant and allow the supporting post to be securely embedded in the bone.
