If you are missing one or more teeth, have loose or ill fitting partial or full dentures and would like to smile, speak and eat with confidence, dental implants may be the solution you are looking for. Dental implants are mechanical substitutes for natural roots. They are screws made of titanium and are anchored in the bone: crowns, bridges or removable bridges may then be attached to them. Dental implants provide a real alternative to some of today's conventional restorative dentistry. Dental implants, when placed by properly trained dentists show a success rate of 90% or better. With effective maintenance and home care, dental implants may last a lifetime.
Single Tooth Implant
When a tooth is lost completely often the best solution to replace is with a dental implant, this avoids using a denture or cutting down healthy teeth either side of the gap.
The dental implant is a small screw which replaces the tooth root, into which a small post is placed, the crown can they be cemented or screwed onto the post. This option gives excellent aesthetics without the need to compromise other teeth.
When a patient has lost several teeth either at the front or back of the mouth in the upper and/ or lower jaw. Multiples of implants are used to support fixed crowns or bridges. Please note we do not replace one implant per tooth..
This helps to improve your bite and function, thereby preserving the jawbone and your facial appearance.
Full Upper and /or Lower Implants
When all the teeth are missing they can be replaced with a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants. This provides a stable long term solution which virtually replaces what nature created.
Removable Denture Supported by Implants
Dentures can be anchored with dental implants.
