This treatment option is still considered by many the best way to replace missing teeth. It is important to have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support an implant root, so we always start with a complete assessment to see if this treatment option is suitable for you.
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium which is securely placed into the jaw to serve as an anchor for a replacement tooth. A crown is then fitted over the dental implant, matching the colour and contours of the surrounding teeth. In time bone grows around the root and the implant becomes integrated into the jaw bone.
Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth so no-one will know the difference.
We pride ourselves on using one of the most reputable recognised quality implant companies in the world to produce the best possible results for you. Many of the implants on the market are less than 5 years old and there are no long term studies to prove their success over time.
