Dental implants offer a safe and predictable way of replacing lost or missing teeth. They can be used to replace from one to all missing teeth. Implants may be used to permanently fix missing teeth in the mouth or to stabilise loose, uncomfortable dentures. They provide the best long-term answer whether you have lost your teeth through gum disease, accident, injury or decay. They look, feel and function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
Put simply, they work by inserting a titanium screw into the bone of the upper or lower jaw; it serves as the root portion of a missing natural tooth. After a healing period, where screw has time to bond with the bone, a cosmetic crown, bridge or denture attachment is secured on top.
