Dental Implants

Dental implants are the latest technology in tooth replacement, providing a permanent and natural looking solution. Missing teeth make it difficult to chew efficiently, can obstruct your speaking ability and look unsightly, all having a negative impact on your confidence. The surrounding teeth can also become chipped, tilted or crowded due to the pressure of an uneven bite.

A dental implant is a secure, artificial tooth root that is placed in your jaw, providing an anchor for a replacement tooth. Once the bone has fused with the implant, an artificial tooth known as a crown is attached to the implant, creating a very natural looking, durable and functional replacement tooth. Dental implants are preferable to dentures or bridgework as they are more comfortable, permanently secured to the jaw and hardly distinguishable from your neighbouring teeth.

Dental implants are now widely used to:

  • Replace a single tooth (or many single teeth using one implant per tooth) with a ceramic crown secured to the top of the implant to give the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
  • Secure a full or partial implant supported ceramic fixed bridge.
  • Retain removable dentures to prevent movement and dramatically improve the ability

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
