Implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth, and to support unstable dentures
Why use an implant?
Dental implants have become a very popular way to restore single or multiple missing teeth. They can dramatically improve confidence, restore smiles and allow the patient to eat comfortably. Implants provide a long term solution to missing teeth, whilst preserving bone structure and not adversely affecting adjacent teeth.
What is an implant?
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth root, usually made from titanium. Once healed the implant can be used to support a variety of components including dentures, a single crown or multiple teeth on a bridge.
How does the implant process work?
The placement of an implant involves a small surgical procedure, with the option of sedation. Dental implants have been used for over 50 years and can last a lifetime. Like any other restoration dental implants can be damaged by trauma and affected by gum disease and poor oral hygiene. An initial implant assessment is therefore essential.
