Dental Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth.
A post is planted in the jaw bone to support missing replacement teeth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Dental Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or dentures.
Dental Implant treatment normally has two stages
First, you should decide whether implants could be right for you. Contact us to arrange an implant consultation and discussion and we will let you know the possibilities. Our team will be only too happy to help you with any questions you may have.
If you decide to go ahead, this is what will happen:
Dental Implants usually have two sections - the post in the jaw and an extension that is added later when the post is secure. Attaching the extension needs a small cut in the gum above the implant. You might have more than one dental implant. The replacement teeth might be fixed permanently (like a crown or bridge) or attached in a way which lets you remove them for cleaning (like a denture).
