Dental Implants are Titanium root shaped threaded rods that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. A unique property of Titanium is that it fuses with bone after the insertion allowing the support of an artificial structure like a crown, a bridge or even a full denture. It serves as an artificial root and provided that there is sufficient bone available and that the patient is in good general health, it can solve a lot of common dental problems. In some cases it may be necessary to provide enough bone through an additional procedure. We will gladly advise you. If you struggle with full dentures or do not want adjacent teeth involved in crown and bridge work, this is your solution. Treatment can normally be carried out under local anesthesia in the dental chair but we can also provide consious sedation or general anaesthetic for patients who may need it. Having a dental implant can prove to be a life changing event, helping people to rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. Having lost teeth replaced with dental implants will also improve your quality of life by boosting your smile, overall appearance and self-confidence.
