When teeth are lost, dental implants are the most ideal option when compared to fixed bridgework or removable dentures. Implants are not suitable for everyone. The amount of bone available is one of the most important considerations. If you still play contact sports, smoke cigarettes and/or suffer gum disease, implants may not be suitable for you.
Before any implant can be placed, careful planning with some specialist involvement is usually necessary. From the time the tooth is lost, it can take many months before the bone site for the implant is ready. If you have been approved for an implant, you can have the peace of mind knowing that you are receiving the best possible option in tooth replacement.
