The Ten Things Everyone With Missing Teeth Should Know About Dental Implants

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


1. Dental implants look and feel natural

Many patients report that they cannot tell any difference between their dental implants and natural teeth.

2. You can eat anything you want

Tooth implants enable people to eat, speak and laugh normally. Teeth supported by dental implants don’t move around. They are as solid and reliable as natural teeth.

3. Dental implants are worth the money

The British Dental Health Foundation says that “Over the longer term, implants are usually a more cost-effective and satisfactory option.”

4. Dental implants are the only treatment that replace tooth roots

All other dental treatments only replace the tooth, not the tooth root. Over the longer term a missing tooth root can lead to bone loss, movement of adjacent teeth and changes in face shape.

5. No damage to other teeth

Unlike a conventional bridge, replacement teeth supported by dental implants do not damage any remaining healthy teeth.

6. Implant teeth last a lifetime

With good oral hygiene, dental implants can be expected to last a lifetime. This makes them an excellent investment.

7. Securing loose dentures

Dentures supported with implants don’t move around in the mouth, or put pressure on the gums. Implants can be used with both fixed and removable dentures.

8. Preventing bone loss

Bone beneath a denture shrinks because it is not being used and chewing pressure reduces blood supply. Dental implants replace lost tooth roots and do not press on the gums. This means they can help to prevent bone loss in the jaw.

9. You don’t need a referral from your own dentist

You can get dental implants from any one of over 100 implant dentists listed on . Find the one closest to you and contact them directly through the website.

10. You can get finance to help spread the cost
Many dentists offer finance packages to help with the cost of dental implants. Visit and ask about finance when you contact your chosen implant dentist.

Over 100 dentists and dental clinics, throughout the UK, offering dental implants are listed within the new patients’ version of the online directory,

Dental implants: A dental implant is a titanium rod used to replace lost or failing tooth roots, to provide support for replacement teeth. They can be used to replace missing or failing teeth, support single crowns and fixed bridges, retain full dentures and to replace full and partial dentures.

Patient advantages: Dental implants mean an end to uncomfortable dentures and loose bridgework. Dental implants look and function like natural teeth, increasing the patient’s confidence of a completely natural smile. Patients are left able to eat, talk, smile, laugh and kiss with confidence. Facial and gum vitality are maintained.

Clinical advantages: With dental implants there is no need to damage the adjacent teeth as there is with conventional bridge work. Implants are as firm as natural teeth, can last a lifetime, and are cost-effective in the long term. Continued use of the supporting bone prevents the shrinking associated with conventional denture use.

DENTSPLY Implants is the implant division of DENTSPLY Inc, the world’s most prolific supplier of specialist materials used in dentistry.

The company is campaigning to make implant treatment more accessible to dental patients throughout the UK. In addition to providing direct access to implant dentists online via , it is helping to make the option of dental implant treatment more widely available through patients’ own dentists. The company supports training for patients’ general dental practitioner to undertake the final restoration in straightforward referred cases, as well as comprehensive courses on the surgical placement of dental implants.
