What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a metal post or frame, which is surgically anchored into the jaw underneath the gum.
It supports the placement of an artificial tooth, which is mounted onto the implant.
It holds a replacement tooth, or a bridge in place by creating a stable base and is essentially a substitute for a natural tooth root.
Implants are made from titanium or titanium alloy, with the materials proven to able to maintain a close union with the bone.
There are many different implant systems available to consider and, when used in the correct application, they can all deliver a highly reliable form of treatment.

Each implant is placed into your jawbone in the location of the intended replacement tooth.
The dental surgeon will look to create close contact with the surrounding bone to create stability.
After placement, an implant fuses together with the jawbone.
Dental implants have a form of internal screw thread that allows components to be fitted.
Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for the long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
Once the implant is fused, a dentist attaches a crown on top, to replace the missing tooth.
Patients who are looking to improve their self confidence and regain full function of their teeth may find implants as a good long-term option for replacing missing teeth.
A bonus of implants are that it doesn’t come loose like a denture can.
