Implants are a modern way of directly anchoring a new tooth directly to the jawbone. We are happy to discuss implants for our patients with missing teeth and pleased to offer an expert referral to local colleagues who are trained and experienced in this technique.
Modern dentists regard implants as the best clinical option to replace missing teeth.
A dental implant is a small cylinder shaped titanium piece placed in the jawbone. This provides the root or foundation for a crown, bridge or denture. Like hip, knee and other replacements, your body accepts titanium, it will integrate it into the bone and so implants are a long-term predictable solution for replacing missing teeth.
