What are dental implants?

Dental Implants are the only permanent and fixed solution to replacing missing or damaged teeth. They are also the nearest thing you will find to your natural teeth in terms of appearance and function. Missing teeth can cause

  • The adjacent teeth to shift
  • The opposite jaw teeth to overgrow towards the gap
  • Bone loss.

By replacing missing teeth with dental implants, you can restore the beauty as well as the health of your smile and prevent bone loss altogether. Dental implants can be used to replace teeth that have been lost due to damage, decay, and injury. They can also be used to create a stronger, more beautiful smile. If you are not happy with your smile, you can replace one or all of your teeth with dental implants.

Dental implants are biocompatible cylinders which are carefully inserted into the jaw through a tiny incision. Gum tissue is able to grow and attach itself to the cylinder, leaving you with a durable replacement ‘root’ which is then topped with a natural-looking ceramic replacement tooth made to match your smile. Over time, the stability is enhanced as the bone grows around the implant.

Dental implants can be used as a permanent solution to missing teeth or as a support for crowns, bridges or dentures.
