Dental Implants in Richmond
These days, losing a tooth does not mean that you have to cope with a permanent gap in your teeth, or start wearing dentures.
For many patients, dental implants are the modern answer. These replace the tooth’s own root, allowing a false tooth to be anchored permanently into the jaw, just like a real tooth. They can also provide a firm and comfortable base for dentures.
The implant itself is a titanium post inserted into the gum. Left in place for two to four months, the bone around the implant gradually grows and bonds with the implant, holding it securely in place.
The implant can then be fitted with a false tooth, just like a crown is fitted to a real tooth root. The result looks amazingly realistic, and feels as strong and comfortable as your own teeth.
Alternatively, implants can be used to hold dentures firmly in place, allowing you to eat and talk comfortably and without embarrassment. They are invisible and, combined with today’s modern denture-making, give you a natural-looking and confident smile.
