An elegant solution for missing teeth is dental implants. Replacing missing teeth has always been a difficult problem. A dental implant provides a foundation for replacement teeth that retain the feel and function of natural teeth. They are also used to stabilise loose dentures.
Dental implants are sophisticated, surgical grade titanium posts. They are carefully inserted in the jaw where the teeth are missing. These act as tooth root substitutes and are surgically placed into the jaw where the teeth are missing.
Over a period of 3-4 months the bone then integrates with the titanium dental implant creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. The implants are invisible once the replacement teeth are in place. For the most part, the dental implant procedure involves only minor oral surgery.
Crowns, bridges and dentures can be supported by single or multiple implants to replace missing teeth and restore a patient’s appearance and function.
