Implants

Dental Implants are a unique and technologically advanced form of reconstructive dentistry and the definitive choice for people unwilling to compromise with more routine methods, such as removable dentures and fixed bridges, to replace missing teeth.

A dental implant is a man-made substitute for the root of a natural tooth. It is the foundation that you can attach a crown or bridge to.

A single dental implant consists of 2 main parts.

Implants

The first part is the implant - a titanium screw, inserted surgically into the jaw bone. When this implant has healed (integrated or fused with the bone) the second part can be connected.

Implants

The second part is the abutment - this abutment or post, fits into the implant and passes through the gum. It links the implant with the restoration. This might be a single tooth or crown, as illustrated above, or a multiple tooth bridge, or even a clip-on denture.

Implants

The high degree of predictability for dental implants ensures that we can confidently offer a more advanced alternative to conventional restorative techniques and help to enhance your quality of life.

The osseointegrated approach using Titanium implants ensures a firm and lasting bond with bone and provides a strong foundation to support replacement teeth over many years, possibly even a lifetime.

They can give you a second chance to replicate what nature did in the first place. Titanium has the unique property of fusing with the bone tissue through a process of integration, and therefore becomes like part of the body in the process. This gives the dental implant its extreme strength of attachment.
