Restore your confidence with the perfect smile thanks to dental implants, eliminating the need for uncomfortable dentures. Custom-made dental implants can feel like you have a brand new set of teeth. Whether you have unsightly gaps, missing teeth or no teeth at all, dental implants could help you smile and eat comfortably again.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer a highly researched, predictable, conservative and elegant method of replacing missing teeth, providing a solution that mimics as closely as possible your natural tooth. A commercially pure titanium post is placed in the jaw bone and acts like the root of a natural tooth. It is used to support the replacement tooth after a suitable healing period. The replacement teeth might be fixed permanently (like a crown or bridge) or attached in a way which lets you remove them for cleaning (like a denture).
Implant treatment normally has two stages. First, the implant is placed in the jaw during a highly controlled and precise surgical procedure. Then, when the jaw has healed, replacement tooth or teeth are attached to the implant.
In some situations it’s possible for temporary teeth to be attached to an implant at the time of placement.
Am I suitable for implants?
Almost anyone who has missing teeth that they want replaced could be suitable for treatment using dental implants. However, implants are often part of a wider course of dental treatment, so we’ll need a thorough consultation and examination to make sure we deliver the results you’re looking for.
