Benefits of dental implants

There is a huge array of benefits to dental implants in Edinburgh. Firstly, they are the next best thing to our natural teeth, with a fit and function very similar to healthy teeth. Some other tooth replacement options can lead to weakening of the bone, as well as trouble with eating and speaking.

With proper care and attention from our implant dentists and good care from you, they can last you a lifetime. This is different to the traditional methods of tooth-supported dental bridges, only having an expectancy of between five to ten years.

Dental implants also allow you to keep your teeth in your mouth, not in a jar by your bedside table at night. They are fused directly into the bone, so there is no fear of slippage. You can floss and brush without fear of clicking or shifting the teeth.
