Q: What are Dental implants?
A: A dental implant is a titanium screw that is used to replace a tooth that has been lost. They can be a long term or sometimes permanent solution to missing teeth. They can be placed to help retain and stabilise dentures.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are secured into a patient’s jawbone where they are missing teeth. Once secured, the bone gradually bonds with the titanium providing a very secure foundation for artificial teeth.
Almost anyone with a missing tooth can be suitable for dental implants, except for children as their facial bones are still growing. If you are considering dental implants get in touch and we will be delighted to book you in for a consultation.
