What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the most advanced dental solution for people wanting to replace their missing tooth or teeth. They are made of biocompatible titanium. We insert the implant surgically so that it fuses with the jawbone. This process is called ‘osseointegration’. Like the roots of natural teeth, they provide a permanent anchor for replacement teeth, including crowns and bridges or dentures.
When are dental implants used?
Dental implants can offer an ideal solution for people who have lost one or more teeth. This may be the result of tooth decay or an injury. We recommend implants when they suit the needs of the patient. Candidates for implants should be in good general and oral health and have adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant.
