Cavities, tooth decay and gum disease that is left untreated results in missing teeth. Other reasons for tooth loss include lifestyle choices such as smoking and drug abuse. Teeth may weaken with old age and certain illnesses and medication can also make you lose your teeth.

How do dental implants work?
In dental implant therapy, the titanium screw works as a replacement for the root of your missing tooth. This is inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth and to make sure that it fits securely in place you may need to have a small hole drilled into the bone for the implant to fit into. Titanium is a biocompatible metal which is strong, durable and non-corrosive. It is therefore ideal in medical procedures such as these. Titanium initiates osseointegration which is a natural process that encourages osteoblasts to form around the surface of the screw, so that it becomes firmly embedded in the jawbone and becomes a permanent fixture in your mouth. This is an excellent process which was initially discovered by accident, but with much research and development has now become the gold standard in tooth replacement therapy. The process itself takes several months for the implant to be successfully embedded into your jaw; however, the results are permanent and help you enjoy a beautiful, confident and fully functioning mouth for the rest of your life.
