Dental implants are the modern way of replacing lost or missing teeth. Essentially they are titanium screws which are fixed into the jawbone. After a healing period of around six months, the implant is ready to accept a custom-made crown giving the patient a fully functioning and long lasting, natural looking tooth.
Dental implants may be used to replace individual teeth, multiple teeth, or all your teeth in one or both arches. Surgery is often straightforward under local anaesthetic or sedation but will require a specific treatment plan.
