Dental implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth and they work identically to their natural counterpart. The process involves the implant being placed gently into the gum and jawbone under sterile conditions then a bespoke restoration is placed on top. The result is a natural looking ‘tooth’ that emerges from the gum like a regular tooth. Implants are comfortable, durable and long-lasting.
Implants can be used to replace teeth lost from extraction, trauma, teeth missing from birth, infections and failed root canals or crowns. There are many advantages to implant treatment including; no damage to adjacent teeth, prevention of bone loss, maintaining tooth alignment and best of all you can eat what you like unlike with more traditional solutions such as bridges and dentures. Implants also have the longest life and best success rate of any dental treatment to date.
