What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw that integrates with your jaw to replace the lost tooth root. A porcelain crowned tooth is then attached to the top of the implant to complete your smile.
The dental implant procedure has been around for over 30 years and gives you the closest result to having your own natural teeth back.
Dental implants can be used to:
- Replace a single missing tooth with a single dental implant
- Replace a row of missing teeth secured over multiple dental implants
- Replace a whole mouthful of teeth if necessary.
Why have dental implants?
If you have lost or are missing a tooth and have a large gap, then your jaw will continue to shrink and weaken until the gap is filled. Dental implants are the best way to stop this continuing damage and give you the closest result to having your own natural teeth back.
A dental implant is also a great alternative for denture wearers that find dentures uncomfortable, sore or difficult to chew and speak with.
The benefits of having implants
- Dental implants are the longest lasting of all the techniques used to replace missing teeth
- Dental implants are hard-wearing – just like real teeth
- Dental implants are a straightforward and safe procedure.
