Dental Implants Llanelli
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone. Then the implants act as a root substitute that is used to support crowns, bridges and dentures. Dental implants in Llanelli are very popular and are considered to be the next best thing to having your natural teeth.
It is a surgical procedure with different stages and takes several months to complete.
Why are they used?
They are a more permanent solution to filling a gap.
They can be used for a single tooth replacement or several. You can even have dentures that are held in place by implants.
Can anybody have implants?
There are certain conditions as to whether or not you can have implants. As they can fail (although this is extremely rare) and you still have to care for them as you would your natural teeth.
You would be unable to have implants if you do not have enough bone to support them.
Also, certain factors such as gum disease or smoking will put you at risk of implant failure. Therefore you may not be able to have the procedure.
