Dental Implants are titanium screws (posts) which replace the natural tooth root and support replacement teeth. They fit directly into your jawbone and hold artificial teeth in place in the same way that roots support natural teeth.
If you have gaps in your smile or you have had enough of wearing uncomfortable or loose dentures, implants are comfortable and natural looking – the modern solution. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth all on the same day. If you look after your implants properly and maintain good oral hygiene, they should last for the rest of your life.
Almost any situation can potentially be treated with this procedure, however various factors need to be taken into consideration such as bone volume and quality, tooth and jaw relationships, oral habits and general medical health. We’ll advise you on all the options for your situation.
