Dental implants: we know our stuff.
If you’re missing a single tooth, or a number of teeth, dental implants are the ideal solution.
Implants help to recreate natural looking smiles and chewing function. We like to think of implants as restoring the natural harmony of the mouth. Ultimately, they can enhance a person’s confidence, smile and wellbeing.
Implants have proven to be the most successful and enduring solution for replacement of missing teeth. By stimulating the jaw bone, they help preserve it and stabilise adjacent and opposing teeth by preventing tooth movement.
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant is a titanium attachment that works much like an ‘anchor’ or foundation.
The most significant advantage of implants is they do not touch or compromise the adjacent teeth.
As with dental bridges, implants can help to address:
- The appearance of a single missing tooth or multiple teeth
- Jaw bone loss
- Cheeks appearing hollow due to a missing tooth
- Gums that are receding
- Shifting teeth
- Natural bite distortion
- Problems with speech, bite and chew function
Depending on your treatment requirements, implants can be fitted in single or multiple appointments, making them time and cost effective. Where infection is present, this generally needs to heal prior to placement of the implant.
