Dental implants are a small titanium fixture that are inserted into your jaw.
They are a permanent solution to tooth loss and are commonly used instead of dentures or bridges as they are a long-term and durable solution.
Many patients prefer dental implants over dentures because they are not removable and they feel and look just like a natural tooth.

Dental implants are a durable solution available at justSMILE in Ramsgate. Our practice is fitted with the most advanced technology and we also use Nobel Implants which are some of the most advanced and reliable implant brands.
Nobel Biocare implants are used for a number of different types of tooth loss including multiple tooth loss, singular tooth loss and full arch tooth loss. Implants can be used as a support mechanism for a full denture bridge which will be fitted to your implant in order to create the best bite for total function including speech, chewing and jaw bone support.
Why replace a missing tooth?
Teeth are responsible for maintaining jaw bone strength and density. The density of your jawbone is what gives your face a defined and shapely jaw. Without this density your lower jaw will begin to recede which can change the shape of your jaw and compromise the sturdy support that your teeth need in order to stay stable. Your teeth roots connect with your jaw which is how you are able to bite, smile, chew and speak with confidence – without worrying about your teeth falling out.
A dental implant is an artificial way to stimulate this process. The implant itself acts as the artificial tooth root, while the implant crown (or pontic) acts as your artificial tooth. This tooth will be specially created using Nobel Biocare technology so that the peaks fit perfectly with the adjacent teeth. This will ensure that your bite is comfortable and that it does not create alignment problems or discomfort.
A dental implant consultation with Dr Rammo and your dental implant options
You can visit Dr Rammo’s Ramsgate practice where he provides in-depth consultations to his patients. If you have lost a tooth or know that extraction is part of your necessary dental treatment he may talk to you about your dental implant options. Options for tooth loss normally include selecting either a bridge or a dental implant which both replace missing teeth. A dental implant is an investment in the longevity of your smile while a bridge is a ceramic restoration that does not last as long.
