Dental implants represent the most high tech solution for replacement of one or more missing teeth. They are as close as we can get to giving you your missing tooth back.
When a tooth is missing a dental implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone and left undisturbed for a period so that it can integrate with the bone. After integration the artificial tooth or “crown” is attached to the implant via an abutment. By mimicking nature, dental implants can provide an excellent functional and cosmetic outcome.
Some of the advantages of dental implants are that they are more stable and comfortable than dentures, they restore the ability to chew better than other treatment modalities, they are aesthetically pleasing, they do not affect speech or taste, they prevent the hollowed out appearance that occurs when cheeks sag following extractions and in many instances represent the best value for money in the longer term.
