Implants provide a permanent solution for a missing tooth or teeth. They are an alternative to dentures and provide a natural substitute for your own teeth – allowing you to eat all kinds of food with confidence.
Implants use a titanium rod that is inserted into the jaw bone – without the need to drill the surrounding teeth. The surrounding bone tissue will then fuse onto the implant – a process known as osseointegration.
The implant provides a ‘root’ on which replacement teeth, crowns, bridges and dentures can be fitted.
