Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Bridges, dentures and flexible dentures are not the only solution, thanks to advances in modern dentistry. Have you heard of dental implants? Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence. This is how they work:
- An dental implant is a small titanium fixture placed into the jawbone in the place of a missing tooth. It is usually left in for some time to integrate – that is for the bone cells to grow to the metal surface so that it becomes fused to the jaw bone.
- Once established it can then act as a new artificial root from which you can build naturally looking crowns and bridges to replace missing teeth.
Dental Implants are not provided at our practice, however we are able to refer to local specialists who offer this treatment
