Dental implants are an ideal solution if you have missing teeth or are looking for an alternative to wearing dentures. They offer a smile that looks and feels completely natural.
A dental implant is a replacement for a natural root and it’s the most secure and long lasting known anchor for false teeth.
Surgically placed below the gum line, titanium implants fuse with the jawbone so that crowns, bridges or dentures can then be attached by screws or clips.
Implants are the most sustainable alternative to conventional bridges and partial dentures because they don’t require priming of adjacent teeth and they anchor the denture in place, allowing no movement whatsoever.
When teeth are lost, the jaw bone underneath starts to shrink, but implants reverse this process by fusing with the bone, encouraging it to grow naturally to support the implant. This can transform the shape of the face and halt the drastic appearance of ageing brought on by loss of bone volume in the jaw.
