Dental implants are the most reliable and beneficial way of replacing a single tooth, several teeth or a full set of missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial replacement for the root portion of your natural tooth, and is anchored using a titanium screw into a pre-drilled socket in your jaw-bone. It can support a crown, bridge or secure a denture firmly in place.
When are Dental Implants used?
Typically when teeth are missing or have been knocked out during an accident.
The advantages of Dental Implants
Implants usually look and function just as well as your own natural teeth.
Unlike some bridges and dentures, which can be prone to decay, dental implants just need regular brushing and flossing.
The Implant procedure reduces the potential loss of your natural bone compared with dentures and bridges.
