Dental Implants - Dentist Negligence Compensation Claim Solicitor


A dental implant consists of a false tooth root made out of titanium which is planted into a hole drilled through the gum into the jaw bone. Titanium is the only metal known to physically bond with animal bone over time. Once the implant is in position, usually in place of an extracted tooth, the titanium stump of the artificial root is capped with a ceramic or porcelain crown giving a permanent replacement for the natural tooth. The crown can be permanently glued to the titanium root or may be screwed in, making it able to be replaced if necessary in the future. Dental implants are the way of the future and in many cases have taken the place of bridges and dentures.

Dental Implant Advantages

Dental implants have many advantages over bridges or dentures. They have a much better appearance when compared to the other types of unnatural teeth and they both look and feel like natural teeth. The titanium roots fuse with the bone so that they become a permanent part of your body. Some of the advantages of implants are as follows :-

  • speech is better when compared to dentures because implants don't slip
  • eating is much improved when compared to dentures and bridges
  • self-esteem can be improved because you have a mouth full of decent looking teeth
  • overall oral health is improved when compared to bridges or dentures
  • dental implants are durable and may last a lifetime
  • installation is a simple surgical procedure when deal with by a trained professional
  • failure rate is low in suitable patients with decent bone structure
  • success rate is about 98%

General Health

If you are healthy enough to get your tooth extracted in the first place, you are considered healthy enough for a dental implant procedure. The bone needs to be solid and the gums must be healthy in order to have implants placed successfully. People with severe diabetes or heart disease must be cleared by their doctor in order to go through a dental procedure such as implant placement. People who have implants must still brush their teeth twice per day and must visit the dentist every six months in order to be re-evaluated and to have their regular teeth inspected for cavities or other damage.
