Dental Implants are perhaps the healthiest and most long lasting tooth replacement option available today. Patients tend to prefer a dental implant over the other options because it is the option that most resembles and acts like a natural tooth.
A dental implant is essentially a titanium rod that fuses with your jaw in a process called osseointegration. A missing tooth can severely weaken your facial muscles and lead to a drooping look which can increase the appearance of ageing. A dental implant will replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth restoring your natural look. Dental implants are a relatively new but proven area of dentistry and are fixed in place with no need to remove them.
The first step towards a dental implant is to organise a consultation appointment where we will discuss all your options, costs and check if you are a suitable candidate. X-rays may also be taken at this visit. The process from having a missing tooth/teeth to having a full set of teeth again can be a long journey. However, at the end of that journey, we find that patients are extremely satisfied and grateful that they can speak and eat with confidence.
