What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants offer a wonderful solution to the problem of ‘the missing tooth’, and can in fact be used to replace several teeth. This can alter the lives of many patients as it can restore appearance, health and functionality of their mouths. They are the most effective cosmetic dental treatment.

A Dental Implant is a small screw made of titanium, which is a metal that the body easily accepts. It is designed to replace the missing tooth root and provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth. Dental Implants are placed directly into the jawbone, usually under local anaesthetic. Over a relatively short period of time, the bone integrates with the surface of the implant, establishing a solid anchor for replacement teeth.

Following a period of healing, a restoration such as a crown or bridge, can then be placed on top of the implant, or it can be used to retain a denture. Implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth, and looked after correctly can last a lifetime.

As the functioning tooth is a molar, for me the major concern throughout was to have a functioning tooth again. This has been successfully achieved and the tooth feels completely natural.

quotemarks-rightI had given little thought to the cosmetics, and thus was taken aback even more to see how natural the tooth looks. You can really only identify the implant, and a neighbouring crown I had made at the same time, by their lack of fillings!
