Multiple dental implants
If you’re missing more than one tooth, there are a number of options available to you at Smiles Dental Care.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small but strong screws made of biocompatible metals, or ceramics, which are inserted into jaw bone in place of missing or failing teeth. You can think of an implant as a false root and they can be used as a base for fixing individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges, retaining over-dentures or supporting full arch fixed bridges.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants bring back the benefits and sense of security that comes with having strong healthy teeth. You can speak, smile and bite with confidence. We will also make bespoke replacement teeth to meet the most exacting aesthetic requirements so you can have an attractive natural smile.
In a healthy mouth, a tooth root transmits chewing forces to the jaw bone. This force is necessary to preserve the bone and prevent bone from being resorbed. Spaces left by missing teeth also allow neighbouring teeth to move.
Implant therapy is a well-proven, state-of-the-art medical dental technique, which has been significantly tested and used over the last four decades by qualified dentists and surgeons worldwide. Today, it offers the possibility to treat almost every indication caused by tooth loss.
