If you are considering having a dental implant or if you would like further information please speak to your dentist about a referral.
Implant - supported replacements teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. This means that you can eat and drink whatever you are used to. But most importantly, dental implants often improve quality of life in subtle ways which may not be as apparent as physical appearance. People who have felt embarrassed and worried because of their tooth problems are often amazed by what new permanent teeth can do for their self-esteem.
A dental implant is a titanium post which is surgically placed into the jaw and integrated with the surrounding bone tissue. The missing teeth can then be replaced on the implant by a crown or a bridge restoration.
For suitability, full costs and a treatment plan, a consultation with the Implantologist will be necessary.
