The preferred treatment for replacing loose or missing teeth is dental implants. They have been available for over 30 years, but in recent years, procedures have become faster, easier and more cost-effective. Dental implants have a high success rate and are becoming increasingly common.
A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that replaces the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.
Dental implants are a safe, well-established, tried-and-tested treatment. It’s probably true to say that implants, like natural teeth, will last for as long as you care for them.
But are they right for you? Here’s a tick list of questions to ask your Dentist: –
- Can a loose tooth be saved by root canal treatment?
- If root canal treatment is an option, would it be expensive?
- How long is the tooth likely to last if it is kept?
- Could a missing tooth be replaced with a bridge or denture instead?
The answers will explain why your dentist is or is not recommending dental implants. To benefit from this treatment, call us to discuss your options.
