Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth – restoring the natural appearance and function of your mouth and avoiding the inconvenience and embarrassment of dentures.
Dental implants are based on artificial tooth roots made of titanium, which are implanted into the bone of the jaw using a simple and painless procedure. Over a few months, the titanium fuses with the bone and creates a secure foundation.
Once that happens, a small pillar or abutment is screwed into the titanium implant to complete the foundation. Natural-looking porcelain crowns are then fitted over the pillar, creating a strong tooth which blends in perfectly with your natural teeth in shape, size, colour and fit.
