Dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement that is truly complete, in the anatomical sense. That’s because dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that replace every single part of the tooth: while dentures and crowns anchored on other teeth replace the cusp of the tooth, the tooth roots remain missing, causing the alveolus to shrivel and dissolve, which weakens the stability of adjacent teeth, causing a cycle of tooth loss.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a tiny screw made of a special titanium alloy that is compatible with the human body. It is so compatible in fact, that the jawbone absorbs and incorporates this tiny titanium dental implant into itself, growing not only around it, but through it and over it in a process known as osseointegration which makes the dental implant the most stable and most trustworthy tooth replacement of all time. These tiny screws are then fitted with an abutment that stabilises the dental crown which replaces the visible portion of the tooth and that allows for perfect replacement of function and appearance.
Benefits over other types of tooth replacements
As mentioned above, the only truly anatomically complete tooth replacement option, replacing all of the parts of the tooth
The most stable option, as this one is the one that will stay lodged in your jawbone, and will stay there regardless of how conditions change in your mouth, as long as your bone density is not affected
Dental implants are also the most cost effective tooth replacement option, despite being the most expensive one. This is because they are built to last you for the rest of your life, and its shelf life is calculated in decades, making it the longest lasting, and thus, the most cost effective tooth replacement option on the market today
Unlike dentures and other tooth replacement options that require dental adhesives, dental implants are attached to your jawbone, and are thus the most stable kind of tooth replacement
Dental implants allow for you to enjoy all of your favourite foods and drinks, without having to worry about them negatively impacting your dental prosthetics
