Dental Implant in Southport – What Is It?

A dental implant is a titanium metal post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. As the name suggests, it’s anchored or ‘implanted’ directly into the jawbone during a short surgical procedure at the missing tooth site. 

Over time, natural bone tissue fuses with the metal post creating a strong platform where a lifelike dental crown or bridge can be placed. Once in position, it completes the look of a whole ‘real’ tooth.  

Dental implants may be right for you if you have one or more missing teeth or are a long-term denture wearer wanting a more stabilised and permanent fixture.

Types of Dental Implant Restoration

While it’s well documented that a tooth implant can replace a single missing tooth, it can also act as a replacement for several teeth (an implant-retained bridge) or, alongside 4-6 dental implants, to replace an entire arch of missing teeth (an implant-retained denture).

If you have one or more missing teeth, then come and talk to Dr Carlos and his team about undergoing dental implant surgery in Southport. He will meet with you and talk about eligibility while answering any questions or concerns you might have about the process. Thus putting your mind at ease.

Advantages of dental implant restorations

If you are considering undergoing an implant-based restoration, there are many advantages to having them. 

Firstly, because a tooth implant is anchored directly into the jaw, it becomes a permanent fixed structure in the mouth. As a result, an implant-restoration is unlikely to move in the mouth, unlike dentures which can become loose over time.

Dental implants are also known to last for many years so they represent a good investment in your long-term oral health 

Finally, an implant is the only form of tooth restoration that can halt bone loss – a natural process that occurs when teeth are missing.

Why Choose a Dental Implant?

A dental implant in Southport provides patients with the most natural-looking and lifelike restoration presently available. This is a restoration that not only looks very similar to your natural teeth but feels indistinguishable because it remains part of your jaw.  

Because it’s permanently fixed it can provide as much as 90% of the bite force of a natural tooth. As a comparison, a  conventional denture typically provides around 30%. Ultimately dental implant patients can eat all types of foods without compromise. 

Then of course there is the psychological impact…

The positive impact of feeling truly rehabilitated with a trouble-free permanent fixture is invaluable.

Cost of Dental Implants

Every patient has different requirements so the price of getting dental implants can vary greatly. This is why your dental implants price is unique to you. That said, Dr Carlos will be  honest and transparent with you about the price so that you know exactly what you need to pay with no hidden costs. Do also bear in mind that despite the initial cost of dental implants, they do represent good value for money, especially when you take into consideration the long-term investment in your oral health and the years of hassle-free use.
