Dental implants, a revolution in dentistry are the perfect solution to replace missing teeth or stabilise loose dentures. .
A dental implant is a titanium post, which is surgically placed in to the jaw and functions as a replacement for your tooth root.
Once the dental implant has integrated with the bone, it can be used to replace a gap due to a missing tooth, via a crown or bridge restoration. It can also be used to support loose dentures. Mini dental implants can also be used to secure dentures into place, but they are only appropriate under certain circumstances. With dental implants the cosmetic and functional results are as good as natural teeth and can last for many years.
Dental implants are artificial replacements for natural teeth lost due to tooth decay, gum disease, or injury. The implant consists of a titanium post that acts as a tooth root and is surgically fitted into the jaw. Either a crown or a bridge is attached to the titanium post as the substitute tooth. Titanium is a safe substance that easily fuses with the gum tissue to support the crown or bridge replacement teeth. Our resident dentists will explain the process to you in more detail and how it is our laboratory custom-makes the titanium posts, crowns or bridges to uniquely fit your mouth.
