Dental Implants

Dental implants offer one of the most effective and long lasting ways to replace one or more missing teeth, providing a permanent alternative to dentures.

Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons including decay, trauma, infection or gum disease, and this loss can result in a whole host of problems. Implants can improve how you eat and speak, prevent shrinkage of the jawbone, and keep existing teeth firmly in place.

Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act just like tooth roots. As titanium is a durable metal that is very well tolerated by the body, these cylindrical posts will eventually fuse with the bone, providing a firm foundation for a crown or bridge.

Treatment steps

Aftercare

You need to maintain good oral hygiene following treatment to ensure your implants remain trouble free. If well looked after, with a regular brushing and flossing routine, they can last for over 15 years. You should also attend regular check-ups so your dentist can make sure your implants stay in great condition.
