Dental Implants are used as a solution to missing teeth, providing an alternative to the more commonly known removable dentures. Implants provide a permanent restorative option which look aesthetically natural and provide high levels of comfort. They restore a tooth’s original functionality, durability and strength and are the perfect option for those who are suffering from tooth loss due to decay or injury.
What is involved?
The implant installation procedure involves the securing of a titanium post within the jawbone to provide a solid foundation to affix a crown or permanent denture.
Once secured the implants are generally left to bond with the jaw bone for a period of between 3 and 6 months, ensuring their full recovery. Following this period a crown, bridge or denture may be secured.
