After an infected or weak tooth is removed, a replacement tooth is implanted to ensure that your dazzling smile and day-to-day activities are not impacted. This implant is a tiny titanium pole or screw inserted into your jawbone beneath your gums and bonds to it. Dental implants provide a strong foundation for your replacement teeth and make them look, feel and function like you never lost a tooth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are basically replacement tooth roots. They provide a strong base on which your permanent or removable replacement teeth are fixed. Once implanted, the titanium implants will fuse with the jawbone allowing them to provide stable support for the artificial dentures or crown. This stable base not only allows the dentures to feel natural but also allows you to eat and speak without the dentures shifting in your mouth.
Dental Implants Treatment Procedure At Love To Smile
At Love to Smile Dental Clinics, we exclusively use Nobel Biocare implants, due to their high quality and success. Implants can be positioned in your mouth in different ways depending on the peculiarities of your case.
We will discuss your options with you and let you understand what needs to be done. Endosteal dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone. After allowing the gum tissue to heal, a second procedure will be carried out to connect a special abutment to the implant. Finally, an artificial tooth is inserted into the implant.

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. An individual who has lost teeth may regain the ability to eat virtually anything, and they can smile with confidence, knowing that their dental implants appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. We can even use implants to help hold in a loose denture. At Love to Smile we want all of our general and cosmetic dentistry services to help you love your smile again.
Implants Can Improve Your Appearance, Confidence, and Freedom
Since dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, they naturally enhance your appearance. More importantly, the securely attached tooth implant gives you the confidence of eating what you like, speaking easily and clearly, and freedom from embarrassment. And, by following a regular routine of careful oral hygiene and regular checkups, your implants can last for years on end.
