What can dental implants do for me?
Many patients suffer from missing teeth. The historic alternatives to missing teeth have been dentures or bridges but these are not without their problems. Many patients complain that their dentures feel loose.
Bridges, by their nature, require the adjacent teeth to be damaged to support the missing tooth. This can present problems later such as decay and abscesses.
Dental Implants can help restore confidence in your smile in a secure, predictable way without damaging any adjacent teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or restore a whole mouth.
First developed in the 1950’s implant technology is now such that there is an excellent success rate for implant treatments. Because implants are secured in bone they look and feel like having your own teeth back. Made from titanium, implants fixtures create an integrated union with your jaw-bone to provide the perfect replacement for your missing tooth or teeth.
