Losing a tooth can really alter your smile and affect your personal confidence. Dental implant treatments have proven to be a highly effective way of creating replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like the real thing!
Implants offer one of the most effective and long-lasting ways to replace one or more missing teeth, providing a fixed alternative to removable dentures. We can lose Teeth for a number of reasons including decay, trauma, infection or gum disease, and this loss can result in a whole host of problems. Implants can improve how you eat and speak, prevent shrinkage of the jawbone, and keep existing teeth firmly in place. While also giving you your confidence back in your smile and appearance!
In brief Implants are titanium posts that we surgically place in the jawbone to act just like tooth roots, giving you back a good foundation to build upon once healed.
As titanium is a durable metal that is very well tolerated by the body, these cylindrical posts eventually fuse with the bone, providing a firm foundation for a crown or bridge or in some cases attachment dentures.
During this period, we will fit a temporary solution. Once we are happy that the tooth has properly integrated, a crown or bridge or denture is fitted on the implant to provide the appearance of a new tooth. The results are stunning.
