Dental Implants are a widely used as a restorative technique and represent a leap forward in dental techniques, offering a permanent solution for one or many missing teeth. They are a highly effective way to replace any missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth and also provide a stronger, more durable and permanent solution to dentures. Not to mention they look natural and have full functionality.
Not to be confused with a crown, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root upon which a crown is affixed to give a strong, natural solution for tooth loss. Firstly the site of the tooth loss is cleaned and sterilised to provide a hygienic, base for the implant. Predominantly made from titanium for its biocompatibility a dental implant is then inserted into the site and permanently bonds with your gums and surrounding bone to create a solid foundation to fix a crown.
