Implants are used to replace missing teeth. They can be used for single teeth, or multiple teeth in the form of implant retained bridges. They can be used to help to make dentures more stable. Implants can also be used to restore all teeth in the mouth.
There are two main components of teeth. The root of the tooth which is usually embedded in the jaw and the crown of the tooth which can be seen in the mouth. Dental implants are a replacement for the root of the tooth. It is made with a specific type of material that binds (osseointegration) to bone. Once the implant has been stabilised, an implant crown can then be screwed or cemented onto the implant to mimic the natural crown of a tooth.
Dental implants are the best option available in mimicking natural teeth. With the assistance of implants we can restore your ability to eat and speak as well as creating a great smile.
