Have you lost a tooth? Maybe you've lost most or all of your natural teeth and are finding traditional dentures a struggle. Dental implants are one of the biggest success stories in modern dental history and are an increasingly popular, permanent solution for missing teeth.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed under your gum into the jaw, where it acts much like a natural tooth root, supporting and anchoring replacement teeth in the form of crowns, bridges or dentures.
Unsecured Dentures (False Teeth) were the traditional solution for missing teeth. Whilst dentures are a solution for some people, they come with their own problems. They can become loose and uncomfortable, causing problems with eating and speaking and even slipping out at unfortunate moments. However, dentures, bridges and crowns anchored in place with dental implants eliminate these problems. They act much like natural teeth so you'll find you can eat all of your favourite foods and they won't move around when you are speaking or even playing sports.
Missing teeth can cause you to be embarrassed about your smile, hiding it away behind your hands. Tooth replacements using dental implants look, feel and act like natural teeth, giving you a smile that you'll be proud to show off. It'll be almost like you never lost your own teeth at all!
