What is a dental implant?

Dental implants give you the confidence to achieve a more natural smile. Acting as an anchor for an artificial tooth, dental implants consist of only a small titanium post that is placed in just one or two visits. These materials are used as they are compatible and can bond strongly to the living bone tissue. The techniques may range from replacing one missing tooth to replacing every tooth in the upper and/or lower jaw.

When natural teeth are extracted, the bone that held them in place begins to shrink. This can cause dentures and bridges to become uncomfortable. As implants provide points of firm attachment, they can help solve problems posed by traditional dentures and bridges. When fixed firmly in place, the implant will be strong enough to bear the daily forces of chewing and normal function.

Implants have become an important part of modern dentistry with millions of people round the world enjoying the freedom and confidence of a full smile.

Without interfering with your speech ability, eating and general comfort, dental implants will offer you the security to achieve that perfect smile!
