People lose teeth all the time, either through trauma when teeth are knocked out or due to decay, gum disease or old age. Whatever the reason for loosing your teeth they need to be replaced both for aesthetic and functional reasons. Dental implants are now becoming the preferred option to replace missing teeth as they provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue. Dental implants are also commonly used to securely fix a denture in place, avoiding embarrassing denture slippage or denture fixatives.

Loss of teeth can be the result of accidents, decay, gum disease, or old age but, whatever the reason, their replacement is important in order to restore health and function. Today, dental implants are considered the best, and preferred, option to replace missing teeth because they are essentially the closest thing to natural teeth.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials that are surgically placed in the jawbone. They serve as a stable foundation for replacement teeth, providing support and stability similar to natural teeth.
Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution for tooth replacement. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for decades, or even a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential to ensure the longevity of dental implants.
While dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option, not everyone is a suitable candidate. Factors such as overall health, jawbone density, and oral hygiene play a crucial role in determining eligibility. A thorough evaluation by a dental professional can help determine if dental implants are the right choice for an individual.
The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that the patient does not feel any pain during the surgery. Some post-operative discomfort or mild pain may be experienced, but it can be managed with prescribed pain medications. The majority of patients report that the benefits of dental implants outweigh any temporary discomfort.

The duration of the dental implant process varies depending on individual circumstances. After the initial implant placement, a healing period of several months is usually required to allow the implant to fuse with the jawbone (osseointegration). The restorative phase, which involves placing the artificial teeth, may take a few additional appointments. On average, the entire process can take between three to six months.
