Restoring your smile with dental implants
Dental implants are great replacements for missing teeth. They’re placed directly in the bone which provides a strong and solid foundation. A crown is placed on top which can mimic the natural shape and colour of your teeth. Implants are designed to be durable, enabling you to eat and function as you would with your natural teeth.
When a tooth is lost, the bone that once surrounded the tooth slowly disintegrates and leads to thinning of the jaw bone. Over time, this can affect the shape of the face and lead to movement of other teeth into the space. The great thing about dental implants is that they will stop the bone from being lost which most other methods of replacing teeth such as dentures and bridges cannot.
Anyone over the age of 18 years can potentially have implants but we assess each case individually and a full consultation will be carried out to ensure that dental implants are a good and safe options for you.
