What Are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are used as a way to replace missing teeth, suitable for all age groups. Teeth can be missing for a number of reasons, for instance, you may have lost a tooth through a sports related injury or trauma or perhaps even had teeth missing since birth. Dental implants could be the long term solution you are looking for.
A dental implant is a titanium screw which is placed into the jaw bone, an abutment is then placed into the implant and allows for your final restoration to be fitted, which could be a single crown, bridge or implants can even be used to stabilise and secure a denture in place.
Dental Implants have been used since the mid 1960’s and in recent years are becoming more and more popular. We are able to show that implants are a safe, convenient way of replacing missing teeth and integrate with the surrounding bone.
