Implants are great for most people who have one or more missing teeth. They are the closest possible replacement to permanent teeth, because they feel and look like your own teeth.
Dental implants are metal posts made from titanium that are easily accepted by the body. The implant is inserted into your upper or lower jawbone to mimic the function of the tooth’s root. After three months, a stable foundation is provided for a crown, bridge or denture to be fitted onto the implant.
Implants allow you to eat and smile with confidence. They also help to preserve the bone and therefore help to maintain the shape of your face.
When cared for properly, implants provide a long-lasting, reliable and stable replacement for natural teeth.
