Dental implants a natural choice
Dental implants can replace missing teeth and represent an alternative to dentures or bridgework. The advantages include improved chewing ability, better speech and improved self-esteem.
The titanium alloy implant is surgically implanted in the jawbone, replacing the root of the missing tooth. It is done under local anaesthesia, just like any routine dental treatment.
While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more toothsaving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
For denture wearer, dental implants can provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable
Under proper conditions and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
