Dental Implants

Dental implants are today's best alternative to natural teeth. They can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind.

An implant is, essentially, a sophisticated titanium screw which is placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of a lost natural tooth. The implant fuses with the jawline to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement. The end result... replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. The embarrassment , irritation and self-consciousness often experienced by people who have missing teeth, those who wear dentures or who have suffered through older methods of tooth replacement are overcome with the confidence of permanently anchored dental implants.

Dental implants are now recognised as routine treatment for a full range of problems from replacing a single tooth, to full oral rehabilitation, or simply for reliable denture retention.

Why Replace a Missing Tooth?

The loss of a single tooth may trigger adverse changes in your dentition ultimately affecting your dental health, ability to chew comfortably your personal appearance.

Your teeth support and rely on each other. When one or more teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can shift out of their normal position. Teeth adjacent to the space or from the opposite jaw will often drift or tilt. These teeth are often more susceptible to decay and gum disease and they are more difficult to clean properly.

All of this shifting, drifting and wear will lead to changes in the bite and potentially, further tooth loss. The remaining dentition, with fewer teeth, is more susceptible to excessive functional stresses and tooth wear. Furthermore, the jawbone tends to atrophy or, 'shrink', as a result of tooth loss. Ultimately, your ability to chew comfortably and your appearance may be affected.
