Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great option to replace missing teeth. Implants are essentially an artifical tooth root onto which an artificial tooth is placed. The end result looks, feels and behaves like a natural tooth – implants are very durable and will last for many years if good oral hygiene is maintained. Implants also provide a great alternative to dentures and can be used to replace a single tooth, or even a full set of teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually made from titanium that is placed into the jaw. A crown or bridge is then fitted on top to replace the missing tooth. The procedure must be performed by a trained dentist and in the right hands, this is a simple procedure.
