A Dental Implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth root. They are a highly effective and potentially long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. A titanium post is placed in the jawbone and over time your own bone grows on the surface of the implant causing it to fuse with the body. The post can then be used as a foundation to support dental crowns, bridgework or to stabilise dentures.
As well as restoring your smile, dental implants have a number of major benefits including enhanced eating and speaking ability, prevention of shrinkage to the jaw bone after tooth removal and improved confidence.
