Dental implants

A dental implant is a highly effective procedure for permanently replacing a missing tooth. The dental implant is indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and even stronger and more durable.

The procedure involves putting an implant into the gum and attaching a customised porcelain prosthetic tooth – perfectly matched in shape and colour. The procedure is usually completed over several visits. New techniques and treatments have reduced the number of visits to just two. 

A dental implant is an excellent alternative to partial dentures and bridges. Like your original tooth, your dental implant is part of you. You’ll never have to worry about it coming loose.

A dental implant is also the perfect solution for keeping a full lower denture in its place. 

Though the procedure may sound somewhat scary, it is, in reality, quite conservative and straight forward. Your dentist will explain the dental implant procedure fully for you.
