About dental implants

Dental implants are usually made of titanium and have an internal screw known as abutment that holds a false tooth in its place. You may choose single implants or multiple implants depending on the number of teeth to be replaced. If you have fewer or no teeth at all, then you might consider the teeth in a day technique that uses at least four to six implants, being supported by a dental bridge.

Benefits of dental implants and other solutions

Other suitable solutions for replacing your missing teeth are – dentures or dental bridges that are fixed to the adjacent teeth. Tooth implant in Birmingham like other places are popular for their durability and if you take proper care of them, they may last for a long time like your natural teeth.


Dentures are a suitable way to replace your missing teeth. They usually last for 5 to 10 years on an average and may last even longer than expected. However, they may become less comfortable as your mouth changes its shape over time.


Dental implants do not cause any damage to the present teeth, however bridges support two or more teeth for cutting the natural teeth. Since the adjacent teeth are not altered for supporting the implant, your teeth will not be touched. Implants allow easy access in between the teeth thus, improving your dental health and hygiene.

May people want to choose bridges as it is a less complicated procedure when compared to implant. They might be needed if the dentist doesn’t find you have sufficient bone to fit an implant and you don’t want to perform a bone graft.
