Want to restore your smile to its former glory? Dental implants put you back in control, functioning exactly like your natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth and provide the closest possible restoration to having your natural teeth back. Implants are a safe and well established treatment, that can last 10 years if properly cared for. A titanium screw is placed into the jawbone and this is used to support either a crown, bridge or denture. Prior to any treatment, the dentist will need to assess the level of bone present in your jaw. If there is not enough bone or it is not healthy enough it will be necessary to undergo a bone graft prior to starting dental implant treatment.
- Dental implants are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth – Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.
- Dental implants allow you to retain your natural face shape, and smile – A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
- Dental implants protect healthy bone – Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to additional health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone.
- Dental implants keep teeth in place – silently – Dental implants are fixed in place and fuse naturally with your jawbone, meaning your replacement teeth won’t move, click or shift.
