Missing and damaged teeth are a common problem for many people. If you are missing your natural teeth you may find that there are other things you miss too. You may miss your natural smile or not being able to eat the food you desire. Some people experience muscle strains and discomfort as the remaining teeth shift. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history. Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.

Dental implants are usually the best solution for permanently replacing one or more teeth as they are designed to completely replace your old tooth - at both a root and crown level. The root of a dental implant is called an abutment, and is made of a biocompatible metal known as 'titanium' - which is very strong and is accepted by your body like no other metal.
The abutment is placed into the gum to form a secure foundation, whilst the top part of your dental implant is a ceramic crown that provides a natural-looking new tooth.
Once your crown is fitted, no one will know you have a dental implant unless you tell them!
