If you’re missing teeth due to accident, infection or age, a dental implant could be the answer. Implant dentistry is a routine, safe and effective dental treatment.
Dental implants are now recognised as routine treatment for a full range of dental issues from replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth and full oral rehabilitation.
A dental implant is an artificial substitute for the root of a tooth made out of titanium. It is surgically inserted into the jawbone and fused with the jaw line to create the foundation needed to receive a crown, bridge or a denture.
Dental implant surgery can support your ongoing oral health and general wellbeing by preventing the bone around a missing tooth from receding and causing unnecessary complications, such as difficulty chewing or damage to surrounding teeth.
For many people, dental implants can last a lifetime, providing welcome relief from the noticeable signs of aging that premature tooth loss can hasten. They will blend naturally with your remaining teeth, without damaging them.
