Implants are a revolutionary treatment to replace missing teeth or to hold and stabilise loose dentures. Giving you “teeth” back can improve function and quality of life, your self-confidence and of course your appearance. We can replace one tooth or many. And often you don’t need one implant for each tooth that is missing .
Dental implants are considered the gold standard for replacing a missing tooth because it feels, function and looks like your natural teeth. An implant is a replacement for a tooth’s natural root, upon which we can fix new crowns, bridges or dentures.
An implant is basically a small, hollow titanium screw which integrates with the jaw bone to produce a solid and secure foundation for crowns, bridges or dentures. Titanium is incredibly strong and fantastically biocompatible such that your living bone will grow onto it, fusing in place to form a tight connection and the basis for your new teeth to have a long life of service.
Dental implants have very high published success rates that compare favourably with, or more likely exceed, most other forms of dental treatment.
