Implants help you to achieve a Natural looking smile.
Have you lost a tooth in an accident or due to dental extraction? We understand that this can cause a great deal of distress and embarrassment for many people.
However, for most cases, thanks to advances in modern dentistry it is easy to restore a natural looking and healthy smile with the use of dental implants.
An implant is a permanently fixed artificial tooth which looks and feels close to the real thing.
The implant is held in place by a small titanium screw which is placed in the jawbone and acts like the root to hold the crown in place.
Once the implant has been fitted the bone grows around the titanium screw and the gum heals around it.
In your first appointment the dentist will conduct an examination of your teeth, gums and jawbone to see if an implant is a feasible option for you.
The procedure itself it takes between four to six visits over a period of a few months to complete, and can usually be done under nothing more than a local anaesthetic.
Implants are a great alternative for people who have trouble with dentures or would like a more fixed treatment for missing teeth.
Implants have transformed the lives of many patients, providing a permanent solution to missing teeth and helping create a perfect, healthy smile.
