Implants look, feel & work like real teeth
Teeth can be lost for all sorts of reasons from tooth decay and gum disease, to injury or accident, but whatever the reason, missing teeth can affect your confidence and ability to eat properly. It is always best to replace the missing tooth, rather than leave a gap, because the remaining teeth bear the extra force of chewing and can begin to wear, and the teeth can drift into the gap causing problems with your bite.
What are implants?
Dental implants look, feel and work like real teeth and quickly become a part of your mouth. An implant comes in two parts. The first is an artificial root made from ultra-pure titanium that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw and bonds with the jawbone.
The second part is what is attached to the dental implant root. For those missing one tooth, a crown will be created to perfectly match your existing teeth or implants can be used to secure a bridge or dentures.
All treatment is carried out under a local anaesthetic and for nervous patients we can offer dental sedation. Dental implant treatment is a minor surgical procedure that has been performed for many years, with an excellent success rate.
