Dental Implants

Missing teeth, have you considered dental implants?

A dental implant is a metal post that has an internal screw or clip (abutment) that holds a false tooth (or teeth) in place. Implants are usually made of titanium. If you look after your implants properly and maintain good oral hygiene, they should last for the rest of your life.

After surgery to insert the implant your jawbone will fuse with the titanium rod. This takes several months. Dentures, crowns or bridges can be attached to the implant to replace your missing teeth. A single implant can support one or more replacement teeth. To replace all your teeth would require at least six implants in your upper jaw and between four and six in your lower jaw
