Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Are you keen to keep some of your teeth in favour of a set of old-fashioned dentures? If so, implant dentistry is the perfect solution, helping to restore your smile safely, so you can bite and chew with confidence once again.
Dental implants are considered the closest replacement for natural teeth available, providing excellent function as well as appearance. Often referred to as artificial teeth, dental implants are actually small metal screws made of titanium which function more like the root of a tooth. They're placed in the jaw so that crowns, bridges and individual dentures can be fixed onto them. When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues start to resorb or disappear over time. When an implant is placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the implant. The final structure then looks like a new implanted tooth.
