What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants (sometimes referred to as teeth implants) are a permanent and fixed solution to missing teeth.
A titanium screw is placed into the jaw bone to replace the tooth’s natural root.
This integrates over a period of three to six months as the bone grows around the screw and holds it firmly in place. A crown is then placed onto the fixed screw to replace the original tooth.
Single & Multiple Implants:
This treatment is suitable for the replacement of single teeth or complete tooth loss in the upper and lower jaw. The placement of implants involves a straightforward procedure usually carried out under local anesthetic.
Many patients are suitable candidates for dental implants and the results provide the patient with the nearest alternative to their natural tooth or teeth that can look aesthetically superb and provide complete confidence when biting, chewing and laughing.
