What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a titanium screw that’s placed directly into your jawbone, replacing your missing tooth root. After it’s fitted, the bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse to it, holding the implant firmly in place.
A false tooth (a crown) which matches the colour and shape of your existing teeth is then fitted to the top of the implant, leaving you with a fixed solution and a natural looking smile.
Dental implants are a long-term solution to replace one or more missing teeth. Losing a tooth or teeth can affect the way you talk, eat and even the way you look. Plus, your self-confidence can take a real knock.
Implants are often used as an alternative to traditional bridges or dentures, but they can also support a single crown, bridge or dentures, so they offer a solution whether you’re missing one or many teeth.
