Dental Implants The Ultimate Solution for Tooth Loss
In the realm of tooth replacement, dental implants are truly in a class of their own. They are the only treatment that completely restores a tooth both above and below the gum line, giving patients a strong and natural-looking restoration that they can trust to last for a lifetime. For patients with gaps in their smiles, implants offer the next best thing to having their real teeth back. You can now get them right here in Accra thanks to the expert team at Bethel Dental Clinic.

Benefits of Implants
When a tooth goes missing, the jawbone in the area naturally starts to shrink as the body resorbs nutrients from it. As a result, this can cause the remaining teeth to shift out of place and cause someone to have a “sunken” appearance. No treatment can directly address this problem… except dental implants. A prosthetic root is used to support a restoration that appears above the gum line, and this new root actually stimulates the bone and increases blood flow to the area, keeping it strong and healthy.
Additionally, because implants are anchored within the jawbone and don’t have any metal attachments needed to hold them in place, they look extremely lifelike. Basically, only you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference between your actual teeth and an implant.
Thanks to the high-quality materials used with implants (titanium and dental ceramic), they are extremely durable as well and are often able to last for 30 years or more.
INDICATIONS FOR IMPLANTS
Are you a good candidate for dental implants? In all likelihood, yes! They can be used to replace any number of missing teeth in the following ways:
Missing One Tooth
Instead of having to file down two healthy teeth to support a dental bridge, a single implant can be placed to fill in a lone gap in a smile, fitting seamlessly among the remaining teeth.
Missing Multiple Teeth
For patients missing more than one tooth in a row, just two implants can be placed on either side of the gap and used to support a bridge. This is an ideal option for patients who do not have enough healthy dental structure for a regular bridge.
Missing All Teeth
If you’re tired of worrying about your denture moving all of the time, we can use just four to six implants to give you a prosthetic that’s guaranteed to stay in place. Implant dentures not only have a better hold and look more natural than traditional ones, but they also help patients recover much more of their biting strength.
START TO FINISH CONVENIENCE
Most other dental practices that offer implants will need to refer you to an outside oral surgeon in order to have them placed, which is far from convenient and can be very stressful for patients. At Bethel Dental Clinic, however, our team has the training and technology to perform the entire procedure all under one roof, helping patients rebuild their smile in the most efficient (and affordable) way possible. From your first consultation all the way until you walk out with a renewed smile, you’ll be able to work with the same team the entire time.
COST OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implant restorations do tend to cost more than traditional ones, but they are actually the best financial choice if you’re looking to replace your missing teeth. Why? In addition to providing superior function and aesthetics compared to regular dentures and bridges, they also last much, much longer. When properly taken care of, a dental implant can easily last for the rest of a patient’s life, while other replacements typically need to be redone every 7-10 years, which can make them much more expensive than implants in the long run.
