Implants are a wonderful way to replace single or multiple missing teeth.
A dental implant can be imagined as an artificial tooth root.
It is made of titanium- a material biologically very acceptable. The surgeon inserts the implant into the jaw very gently, where the titanium then integrates with the bone. The implant then builds a stable foundation for a crown, which will become the visible part of your new tooth.
If a number of teeth are missing then implants can be used to support ceramic bridges. This is an excellent alternative to wearing dentures, providing a secure stable solution, meaning you can continue to eat all normal foods with confidence!
Not all missing teeth can be replaced by implant supported crowns or bridges.
We will first examine your dental situation carefully to decide if you meet the prerequisites for dental implant treatment and advise you accordingly. It is essential that your gums and jaw bone are free from inflammation. If necessary, these conditions must be treated prior to surgery.
