Dental implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. They are durable, long lasting and are the closest possible restoration to having your natural teeth back. Dental implants should last for at least 10 years and provide the best success rate of any dental treatment.
A dental implant consists of two parts, the ‘screw or post’ acting as the root of the tooth. The implant ‘post’ is made of titanium which Osseo integrates to the surrounding bone. The screw or post is topped with a crown, denture or bridge, depending on the number of teeth to be replaced.
Dental implants blend with your natural teeth – Dental implants are indistinguishable from your actual teeth.
Dental implants are strong and long lasting– Dental implants have superior strength due to the tight and strong connection between your jaw bone and the titanium rod and should last for at least 10 years.
Dental implants are convenient – All you need to do is brush and floss your dental implant as you would any other natural teeth and have regular hygienist visits.
