Dental implants, a permanent solution to tooth loss, look and feel completely natural and are suitable for one or more missing teeth. This procedure has revolutionised dental treatment and is incredibly popular with patients as an alternative to traditional dentures. The main reasons for this are that they are easy to maintain and provide complete confidence and stability, meaning they can continue to enjoy the foods they like.
A dental implant is an artificial root made from titanium, a material that is totally accepted by our body, and placed in position where the tooth is missing. After a period of undisturbed healing following placement, the implant is used as a new foundation to support the tooth replacement, which can be a crown or bridge.Read more
