Dental Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to hold replacement teeth. Dental implants are ideal for patients who have lost one or more teeth due to old age, injury or any other reason including poor oral hygiene. Dental implants provide many functional benefits, compared to the traditional dentures or bridgework.
At The Sutton Implant Clinic, we are passionate about providing each and every one of our patients with a new, complete and functional smile with dental implants in Birmingham. Dental implants take the place of tooth roots and provide a sturdy base for fixed or removable teeth that are designed to look and feel natural.
What are dental implants and how do they work?
Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically attached to the jawbone, under the gum line. The device eventually fuses to the jawbone allowing our dentists to attach a metal post that acts as a root for a crown, bridge or denture. Dental implants are much more stable than conventional tooth replacement options and have become a commonplace alternative in recent years.
Am I a candidate for dental implants in Birmingham?
Although dental implants represent one of the most effective and long-lasting methods of replacing missing teeth, there are certain criteria that need to be met.
For those fortunate to have healthy gums and a strong jawbone, dental implants are likely to be a good choice. However, modern implant solutions such as denture stabilisation or All-on-4 dental implants, allow patients to have dental implants even if their jawbone has deteriorated considerably.
Your dentist will be able to examine your teeth and offer advice on an individual basis, once they have given your jawbone a complete examination. In the unlikely event that dental implants are not a viable option, they may recommend other procedures.
