Dental implants offer you the opportunity of having false teeth which will feel similar to your own. Implants can be used to replace missing teeth without the need to drill into the adjacent healthy teeth and they also help preserve the jaw bone. Dentures (especially in the lower jaw) retained by implants are considerably firmer and more functional than those retained otherwise.
A dental implant is often the best way to replace a missing tooth, to both look and feel like the original tooth. A dental implant is a tooth root made from titanium, shaped like a screw and placed under the gum into the jaw bone. The implant is used to help secure crowns, bridges and dentures in the mouth creating a permanent support for replacement teeth.
If you decide not to have implants, then you may consider alternative forms of treatment for tooth replacement. These will include dentures or bridges or accepting the spaces. The consequences of not having the teeth replaced will also be explained to you.
