Dental implants a great restorative solution if you have experienced tooth loss as they are comprised of a  titanium material. Acting as a solid anchor for tooth replacements such as crowns or fixed dentures, dental implants are placed at the site of tooth loss and anchor firmly to the underlying jaw structure (a process called osseointegration).

Dental implants can remedy many of the negative side effects associated with tooth loss including:

  • Jaw bone deterioration and a sunken-in look
  • Tooth movement and bite changes
  • Gum recession
  • Overloading of surrounding teeth

This solid foundation for prosthetic tooth replacements can restore the feel, form and function of your smile, and can even be used in cases of total tooth loss.

Receiving dental implants

Once you have attended your initial consultation we will identify if dental implants would be a suitable option to replace your missing teeth. Our dental professionals will then tailor a treatment plan with your specific needs in mind.

Once we are ready to commence treatment our dental professionals will surgically place the dental implant in the jawbone and allow time for the implant to bond with the jawbone and become a fully functioning element.

Once osseo integration has taken place our dental professionals can use the implant as an anchor for a dental crown, bridge of fixed denture. After the finishing dental restoration has been place you should regain the function of your teeth, as well as the appearance of your smile. The result can also help to safeguard you against the negative effects that tooth loss can have on your dental and overall health.
