What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial root that works like a natural one. Implants can have a variety of uses, from supporting a single crowns, to supporting bridges or dentures when several teeth may be missing.
Why choose dental implants for missing teeth?
Improved quality of life
What used to be normal activities like smiling, laughing, chewing or eating may now be embarrassing. You may find yourself avoiding photographs and choosing carefully off a menu. Dentures may rub and cause discomfort. Dental implants can be a life changing solution.
Keeping your smile and preserving your facial appearance
An implant-borne restoration looks like a natural tooth. Implants also transmit chewing forces to the jaw bone. This is not the case if teeth are missing, or when a conventional denture has been put in place. If these forces cease, the bone may slowly recede and the shape of the face may change over time.
An implant merges with your body
Even the best prosthesis will always be a foreign body. By contrast, a dental implant is simply an artificial root, which on healing, merges with the body and acts like a natural one.
Bridge solution ‘V’ Implant solution
Using a bridge to fill a space means that neighboring teeth have to be ground down to fix the bridge in place. A dental implant replaces the root of the original tooth, while the neighboring teeth remain intact.
Implants are a proven, safe and modern approach
Implant therapy is not experimental. It is a well-proven medical dental technique. We use Straumann ® Dental Implants which, through Swiss precision engineering and clinical excellence have earned worldwide trust.
