If you’re looking for a long-term solution that offers amazing benefits, allow us to tell you a little more about implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a modern solution for patients with missing teeth. Implants are small screw-like devices, which are made from titanium. Titanium is used because it is a biocompatible material, which is capable of integrating into the bone tissue. The implant is placed inside a small hole in the jaw bone and then left to heal. The idea is that the implant takes on the role of a tooth root. Once the implant has been secured into the bone, it is left to heal, and when the healing process is complete, the implant can then be attached to a new restoration. Implants are compatible with crowns, bridges and dentures, so they can be used to a replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
What’s so good about dental implants?
Dental implants offer a wide range of benefits for patients who have any number of missing teeth. These include:
- Incredible, lifelike aesthetics
- Amazing functionality

When you have dental implants, you’ll feel like you’ve got your old healthy smile back. You won’t notice a difference between the new tooth and your natural teeth, and you’ll be able to speak, eat and smile with complete confidence.
