Dental Implants

Dental Implants- the closest thing to a natural tooth.

What Are They?

Dental Implants are small titanium posts that are placed in the jaw bone underneath the gums and support artificial teeth where natural teeth are missing. They work completely independently of adjacent teeth and are therefore often the best solution to replace missing teeth, whatever the reason for their loss.

When dental implants are placed into the jaw bone, a process known as “osseointegration” occurs over a period of time. This means that the implants become firmly anchored into the bone to provide a strong foundation that allows people with missing teeth to chew effectively and comfortably.

Who can benefit from them?

Anyone who has missing teeth and wishes maximum comfort and efficiency in chewing, speech and appearance. People who do not like the idea of dentures or find denture wearing difficult also find implants a solution to their problems.

Who is suitable?

Anyone- assuming that there is enough bone to support the implant and there is no disease or medical condition that may prevent healing after treatment.

Advantages of Implants over conventional bridges and dentures

  • Dental Implants will look like your own teeth
  • Due to “osseointegration”, Implants will prevent bone loss, gum shrinkage and that collapsed face look that can be associated with bridgework and dentures.
  • Dental Implants do not sacrifice the quality of adjacent teeth, unlike a bridge. Your own teeth are left “untouched”- a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.
  • Dental Implants allow you to speak and eat with comfort and confidence and offer freedom from loose dentures and messy denture fixatives.
  • Dental Implants offer a predictable, reliable, successful long-term solution to tooth loss.
