Dental implants enable the replacement of missing teeth, whilst giving confidence that they won't come loose or fall out when eating tough foods. Implants look and feel like natural teeth, they are very durable and will last for many years if good oral hygiene is maintained.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually made from titanium that is placed into the jaw. A crown or bridge is then fitted on top to replace the missing tooth. Several implants can strongly secure a denture in place and give you the confidence to eat what you want without worrying about them coming loose.
Patients must have healthy gums and enough jaw bone to support the implants.
