Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth dental implants offer the perfect long-term solution to replace them. A dental implant is a small titanium post which functions as an artificial replacement for the root portion of a missing tooth. When surgically implanted into the jaw, dental implants "fuse" with bone tissue in your jaw, providing a strong support for an artificial tooth or teeth.

Dental Implants can be used to support a single crown, multiple teeth via a bridge or to secure loose dentures firmly in place. In addition to the obvious replacement of lost teeth, dental implants can also help to preserve your facial structure, preventing bone deterioration and muscle sagging which occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants provide a foundation for the replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like your own natural teeth.
