Dental implants can restore your smile to its former glory
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth. The dental implant is placed into an opening that the dentist makes in your jawbone. Once the implant has had time to integrate into your jawbone, a crown can be placed on top to replace your missing tooth.
Before any treatment the dentist will carry out a detailed examination of the area to determine whether a dental implant would be suitable,they will take x-rays and use scans to determine whether there is sufficient bone to support the implant. If you are suitable, the entire treatment process takes around 3-5 months.
Dental implants are long lasting – dental implants should last for at least 10 years.
Dental implants are self-supporting – this means that they do not cause any damage to your remaining teeth
Dental implants are natural looking – once in place your dental implant should be indistinguishable from your natural teeth
