What is a dental implant?
A dental implant essentially replaces any missing teeth with a titanium screw, providing a sturdy, strong foundation for one or replacement teeth or crowns.
It is placed directly into the jaw bone and allowed time to fuse directly to the bone, providing a seamless join between your jaw bone and the screw. At Ralston Dental and Cosmetic Clinic, Leicester dental implants are performed by our highly trained cosmetic dentist, to ensure a professional process to your cosmetic dentistry.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There is a huge array of benefits to dental implants in Leicester. Firstly, they are the next best thing to our natural teeth, with a fit and function with direct correlation to healthy teeth. Some other options can lead to weakening of the bone, as well as trouble with eating and speaking.
Another benefit is the sheer lifespan a dental implant can provide. With proper care and attention from our cosmetic dentist, they can last you a lifetime. This is exceptional when compared to the traditional methods of tooth-supported dental bridges, only having an expectancy of between 5-10 years.
Dental implants also allow you to keep your teeth in your mouth, not in a jar by your bedside table at night. They are fused directly to the bone, so there is no fear of slippage. You can floss and brush without fear of clicking or shifting the tooth.
