Where the tooth has been lost and adjacent teeth are intact, the method of choice to replace the tooth is an implant. This procedure is now routine and is considered a long term predictable treatment option. Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace missing teeth, providing a versatile solution for single or multiple tooth loss, and they can be used to replace full dentures.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an artificial way to replace natural tooth roots, replicating their form, function and providing a stable base for a replacement tooth. An implant consists of a titanium post that is precisely inserted into the jawbone and it is left to integrate and bond with the surrounding bone. Once this has occurred, an abutment is attached to the implant. This protrudes above the jawbone and supports the replacement tooth.
