What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are when a screw-like is placed into your jaw to fill in for your missing tooth/teeth. It is a long-term solution that replaces damaged and missing teeth with artificial-looking implants that function the same as natural teeth and can be a better alternative to dentures and bridgework.
The dental implant will be formed from a titanium screw. This is so that it can fit securely into the root of the tooth it is replacing. The screw will also be fixed to the jawbone, making it secure like natural teeth. Once the implant is placed securely, a crown will then sit on top to look like a natural tooth, and they will be matched in size and colour to the surrounding teeth so that they seamlessly blend into your smile.
