Dental Implants

Dental implants have revolutionised the way dental professionals can treat tooth loss

Traditional restorative treatments like dentures and bridges have never successfully mimicked the strength, appearance and performance of a natural tooth. Dental implants differ from these traditional restorative devices as they act as a replacement for your natural tooth root.

These devices are essentially titanium screws that are inserted into your jaw bone and over a period of months are accepted as part of your biological makeup. This in turn provides a solid foundation for prosthetic tooth replacements that with good care can last a lifetime.

Why replace missing teeth?

Aesthetic benefits aside, there are many reasons why you should replace a missing tooth. Tooth loss can cause existing teeth to migrate from position, your jaw bone and gum tissue to deteriorate and difficulties when speaking or chewing.

Nothing compares to a natural tooth, but if you have suffered tooth loss dental implants are one of the most effective restorative treatments available today.

The benefits of dental implants

  • Identical to natural teeth in appearance, feel and function
  • Prevent remaining teeth on either side of the void from migrating
  • Decreases stress exerted on the surrounding teeth
  • Helps retain bone structure
  • Decreased chance of gum tissue shrinkage
  • A permanent solution to tooth loss
