These days, losing a tooth does not mean that you have to cope with a permanent gap in your teeth, or start wearing dentures – for an increasing number of patients, dental implants are the answer.
What are dental implants?
An implant is a replacement tooth root, which allows a false tooth to be anchored permanently into the jaw, just like a real tooth.
Dental implants look, feel and function like your own teeth. They also preserve the jaw bone which in turn supports and maintains your facial profile.
Dental implants - a flexible option
Implants can be used to replace one or more individual teeth. Alternatively, dental implants can be used to hold dentures firmly in place, allowing you to eat and talk more comfortably.
