Dental Implants Devonshire, Bermuda
Working with the skilled dental team at Positive Image Dental is the first step in improving your smile. If you are struggling with the loss or extraction of one or more teeth in the smile, you may feel overwhelmed at how to replace missing teeth with today’s options. The dentists at our practice in Devonshire, Bermuda encourage patients to take the time to learn about dental reconstruction options including dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
When patients hear of a dental implant, they are unsure what they are and how they can be used to replace one or more teeth in the smile. The dental implant itself is a titanium post that acts as a tooth root replacement. The implant is put into the bone of the jaw where a tooth used to be and is restored on top with a crown, bridge, or denture. This allows the restoration to replace one, several, or all the teeth in the dental arch, ensuring versatility and strength. Because the implant uses the jawbone as the foundation, it is integrated into the bone with time through osseointegration. With proper oral hygiene habits, patients can expect their dental implants to last a lifetime!
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Some of the advantages implants provide include:
- Stability and strength
- Longevity and permanency
- Smart investment in the smile
- Natural appearance
- Natural function
Patients who have sufficient jawbone and a healthy smile are the best candidates for dental implants, and our team can evaluate an individual to determine if implants are a good fit for their situation. A consultation appointment allows our patients to ask questions about this and alternative options and speak to our professionals about preparing for tooth replacement with dental implants, bridges, or dentures.
