BRIDGE THE GAP WITH IMPLANTS← Return to Blog
Missing teeth or loose dentures? Let us at Cassidy Dental restore your confidence to smile again. Dental implants provide a secure and natural, long-term solution for tooth loss. They are the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth as they look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and replace,
or secure, loose dentures.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth, normally made from titanium. A screw like implant is embedded in bone where the surrounding bone grows and integrates. This stable base allows spaces to be filled with abutments that mimic your natural teeth.
Should I go for dental implants?
Dental implants are one of the best ways of replacing teeth. While it is important to consider all of the options, dental implants have several advantages over other methods of tooth replacement, such as bridges or dentures.
The new teeth can be fixed in place permanently, meaning that you do not need to remove them every night, unlike dentures.
Your new teeth are attached to the implant, so there is no need to prepare the adjacent teeth, unlike with bridges.
A significant benefit of implants is that they tend to last a long time,
often much longer than dentures or bridges.
Of course, all of these advantages are dependent upon the
implants being placed and restored by an experienced and skilled professional – that’s where we at Cassidy Dental come in.
