If missing or damaged teeth are making you feel self-conscious or they’re making eating more uncomfortable than enjoyable, dental implants may be the answer to restoring your natural, healthy smile.
Dental implants are the most advanced tooth replacement option available. They provide a permanent solution that can look, feel and function like the real thing.
What is a dental implant?
An implant is a surgically placed titanium tooth root. Once the implant is fully bonded to the bone, a crown can be fixed to the implant to replace a missing tooth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
As well as looking very much like a normal tooth, implants are extremely durable and long-lasting. What’s more, they can restore chewing and biting ability back to full function.
What does the treatment involve?
Placing the implant is a relatively quick procedure (usually less than one hour per tooth) and takes place under local anaesthetic. Any discomfort is usually minor and dissipates quickly. The crown is fitted around three months later, once the implant is fully integrated.
Thinking of finally filling in the gap?
The sooner you act, the simpler the process will be and the outcome more successful.
