Implants are often the most suitable way to replace teeth that have been lost due to decay, gum disease or trauma or indeed were never present.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw which replaces the root of the missing tooth. This screw then integrates with the bone of the jaw allowing a crown or bridge to be placed to replace missing teeth.
Lifelike, solid and predictable, Implants can go a long way towards restoring confidence for a person with missing teeth
Some benefits of Dental Implants include:
- Very cosmetic
- Can last a lifetime if cared for and maintained properly
- Fixed solution which is not removable from mouth giving increased confidence
- Allow for improved function and eating capability
- Unlike dentures, Implants do not have the potential to cause decay and gum problems in surrounding teeth
