What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial root that is placed in to the jaw bone. Dental implants can replace single teeth, and support bridges or dentures when several teeth may be missing.
Why choose dental implants for missing teeth?
Improved quality of life
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 offer the best alternative to your natural teeth so you can restore your quality of life.
Keeping your smile and preserving your facial appearance
A dental implant looks and functions just like a natural tooth. Dental implants transmit chewing forces to the jaw bone which is just like a natural tooth. This is not the case if teeth are missing, or when you have a denture. If the forces on the jaw cease, the bone may slowly recede and the shape of the face may change.
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 ‘V’ Dental Implant
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 are untouched.
Implants are a proven, safe and modern approach
Implant therapy is not experimental. It is a well-proven medical dental technique.
Common Dental Implant treatments we provide
- Single tooth – replacing a single missing tooth with a single implant and its crown.
- Several teeth – replacing multiple teeth using a combination of implants and bridge.
- All teeth removable – improving the fit and stability of a removable denture using supporting implants.
