A single dental implant replaces a missing or poor tooth through a small titanium ‘fixture’ that takes the place of the original root of the tooth. Gently implanted under local anaesthetic, the titanium ‘root’ bonds with the bone, providing more stability than a natural tooth’s root. All that’s left to do then is for the dentist to put in your brand new, permanent tooth.
Dental implants can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Many of our patients can now eat their favourite foods again and no longer feel they need to hide their smile.
