Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth missing or to fill bigger gaps. It is the most successful modern option for replacing missing teeth.
Many people may avoid getting implants fitted due to fear of the process being painful. However, with the use of local anaesthesia, patients don’t tend to experience any pain or discomfort. Once the numbness wears off, some patients may experience some mild, temporary pain.
If you are looking to replace all your teeth, there are several options available to you. One of which is a supported denture, which would be fitted onto multiple implants spread across your teeth. The advantage to opting for supported dentures is that they are easier to remove for reasons such as cleaning, whilst also remaining very stable in the mouth when they are fitted in.
