Dental Implants

At Kincorth Dental we place many dental implants a month for our patients. It is essential that missing teeth are replaced as soon as possible to maintain overall dental hygiene and to fill the gap which leaves the remaining teeth unsupported. Missing teeth can change the shape of your face and make you look older and less healthy.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a tooth’s natural root and are usually made of titanium, a metal that is well-tolerated by the body. Implants are commonly screw or cylinder shaped and, over time, will become firmly united with the jawbone. At Kincorth Dental surgery our team are very experienced in cosmetic dentistry, and will ensure you have all of the information you require in order to put your mind at ease when selecting a cosmetic dentist.

Why Consider Dental Implants?

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?

Dental implant therapy

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.

Benefits of dental implants

  • replaces missing teeth
  • maintains bone
  • maintains your youthful appearance
  • restores your natural smile

The bars are attached and tiny magnets in the denture then keep it securely in place.
