Dental implants are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth,or to stabilise missing dentures. The implant is an artificial root made of titanium which is securely placed into the jaw to serve as an anchor for a replacement tooth. The bone grows around the root so the implant becomes integrated into the bone structure and is very secure. A crown is then placed over the dental implant, matching the surrounding teeth.
Who are implants for?
Dental implants are designed for people wishing to replace missing teeth, close unsightly gaps or secure unstable dentures. Implant-supported replacement teeth are a long-term solution and look, feel and function like natural teeth.
How long does it take?
Treatment time will vary depending on your unique situation. Nowadays, it is often possible to get well-functioning and aesthetic looking teeth within a few days. In some cases, it may be necessary to wait a longer time before finishing the restoration in order to obtain an optimal result.
How long does it last?
Maintaining care of the implants will help to assure the long-term success of your treatment. Great techniques mean they now last as long or even longer than your own teeth.
