Many people will lose one or more teeth and implant dentistry offers a sophisticated and long-lasting solution for their replacement. Dental implants may be used to replace single or multiple teeth and this treatment can frequently help people who have lost all their teeth in their upper or lower jaws, or in both arches.
What is Implant Dentistry?
With this treatment, a small titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone during a short surgical procedure. The post closely replicates a natural tooth root and will bond strongly with the surrounding bone, providing stable support for a new replacement tooth. Once the replacement tooth is fitted onto the implant post it should feel natural and comfortable.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
With this solution, you should be able to enjoy all your favourite foods and you will have the confidence of knowing your replacement teeth look great. At the same time, dental implants help to protect your dental health by preventing further jawbone loss that naturally occurs once teeth are removed. By closely replicating a real tooth root, your dental implant will ensure the bone surrounding it remains strong and healthy.
Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Provided you have reasonable dental and general health, you will most likely be suitable for treatment. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your oral health and your medical history to determine if dental implants are your best solution.
