Dental implants have revolutionised the way we can treat tooth loss.
Traditional tooth replacements such as dentures and bridges never completely restore the form and function of a natural tooth. At our dental practice, we can provide dental implants, which are the next best thing to a natural tooth and provides exceptional functional and aesthetic results.
Dental implants are comprised of a titanium alloy that is highly biocompatible with your natural bone material. These implants are a replacement for the natural tooth root, and act as “screws” that over a period of months fully integrate with your jawbone material, creating a solid foundation for prosthetic tooth replacements.
Why replace missing teeth?
Tooth loss does not only impact on the appearance of your smile, it can also negatively impact on your total oral health and facial appearance. Missing teeth can cause:
Existing teeth to migrate to fill the void caused by tooth loss, which in turn creates a distorted bite and smile.
Jaw bone material to deteriorate, which can create a slackened facial appearance.
Gum tissue to shrink and recede.
