Dental implants are an effective solution for permanently replacing missing teeth. We will design your implants to look and function just like your natural teeth. This makes for a comfortable, discreet alternative to options like dentures.
HOW IT WORKS
First, we place a metal screw into your jawbone that acts as a replacement root for the teeth that can no longer support themselves. This ‘root’ fuses with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration so that the implant becomes a fixed part of your mouth. Once this is complete, we will attach a crown or denture to the metal post.

When you chew, your teeth stimulate your jawbone, providing blood and nutrients to help build bone mass. Missing teeth prevent this vital stimulation, which can eventually cause your bone tissue to reabsorb elsewhere. Implants are the only tooth-replacement option that prevents this from happening. With thorough care, implants can last for up to 30 years!
Missing teeth can disrupt the facial structure, especially around the lower third of your face between your nose and chin. Implants help to re-align the teeth and jaw by restoring strength and density.
