Losing a tooth it isn’t a pleasant experience. It can hinder chewing ability and daily life; it may also have an effect on self-confidence both in professional and social situations.

Dental implants are much like the root of your natural tooth, only that they are made of titanium. The way in which an implant works is that the titanium dental implant is carefully and painlessly inserted into the place in your jaw where the natural root once was.

Once the implant has been inserted, it then fuses with your natural jaw bone so that they grow together to form a strong and lasting foundation for the replacement teeth. Once the implant has merged, a crown, bridge or denture can be fixed onto the implant, restoring your full set of teeth to seemingly-natural perfection.

Restoring teeth with implants will make them look, feel and function just like normal teeth. You will also look after them as you would with natural teeth by brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist for check-ups.
