The advantages of dental implants
Dental implants have many advantages over other forms of tooth replacement. Most of these advantages stem from the dental implant’s ability to work with your body rather than against it.
Implants act as an artificial tooth root that integrates with the jawbone to provide a stable base for tooth replacement. A single implant can support multiple teeth in a row depending on the quality and amount of bone to support the implant.
Because the implant provides stimulation to the jawbone like a tooth root would, it encourages the bone to become renew itself, maintaining stability.
Dr Joe Bhat, dentist, can talk you through the full list of advantages of dental implants in your first one-hour consultation.
Dental implant surgery
In order for the implant and bone to have the right amount of contact, a small hole needs to be created in the patient’s jawbone. The implant should fit securely in this hole and the two should integrate over time.
This surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic, but Dr Joe Bhat, dentist, can provide a few oral or intravenous sedation for nervous patients, or surgery under general anaesthetic at a nearby hospital as a day patient.
