The Benefits of Dental Implants

If you’ve got damaged or missing teeth, then dental implants can be an ideal solution. Dental implants are long-lasting, look just like real teeth, and sit comfortably in your mouth. 

Unfortunately, many people are not aware of the many benefits of dental implants. If you’re considering your options for replacing broken, missing, or damaged teeth, then keep reading. If you’d like to know more, get in touch with the team at South Wales Specialist Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Centre in Cardiff for their specialist advice. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the bone integrates with the implant, a crown or bridge is attached to provide a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth. This healing process is known as osseointegration and ensures that your new teeth are stable and long-lasting.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants mimic the appearance of real teeth and are designed to fuse with the bone. They help maintain bone structure and prevent bone loss, so you can avoid common issues like with traditional dentures. Implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to preserve its density and shape over time.

Unlike conventional dentures, which can slip and cause discomfort, implants are secure and stable. You can eat, speak, and smile with total confidence. 

Who Can Get Dental Implants Fitted?

Most adults in good health are candidates for dental implants. The ideal candidate should have sufficient bone density to support the implant, although bone grafting procedures can be performed if necessary. It's important to maintain good oral hygiene and attend regular dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of your implants. The oldest patient Mr Craig Mallorie has placed implants on was 92 years old, so age isn’t a hindrance.
