Dental implants are offered here at Bewdley Dental Practice, presenting a permanent solution for your missing tooth or teeth.
What is an implant?
A Dental Implant is a permanent replacement of a natural tooth. The titanium metal implant is placed into a socket at the precise location of the intended tooth. The hollow implant has an internal screw into which an implant abutment is located. These provide the foundation for a crown, bridge or denture to be secured.
Dental Implants have been used since the mid 1960’s but in recent years have become more popular. Implants are manufactured from titanium, a metal that is known to be compatible with body and tissues. From recent research we are able to show that implants are a safe and convenient way of replacing missing teeth integrating well with surrounding bone.
