Dental Implants

A dental implant is a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. Your dentist places them directly into your jawbone, where they provide an artificial replacement for the root of your missing tooth or teeth. 

They can support crowns or dentures, in a similar way that roots support natural teeth. 

Dental implants offer a long-lasting and discreet choice of treatment for replacing teeth.

Benefits of Implants and Alternatives

We know people feel self-conscious if they have missing teeth. With an implant, hopefully you can get your confidence back – whether it’s in your smile, how you eat or when you talk. An implant isn’t the only way to replace missing teeth – there are several other solutions. These include:

  • Full or partial dentures – false teeth attached to a removable metal or plastic framework
  • Bridges – false teeth that are fixed onto the existing teeth either side of your missing tooth or teeth

Your dentist will help you to decide what’s best for you. An implant isn’t the right option for everybody. It can depend on many things, including which teeth are missing, and the condition of your remaining teeth and gums.

One of the reasons people choose implants is that they’re a more permanent option than dentures. So long as you care for your implant properly, they can last as long as natural teeth.
