When you have lost a tooth, it leads to multiple practical problems in your daily life. An effective option to tackle this is using a dental implant to safely and successfully replace your lost tooth. Dental implants are also effective for more than one tooth. Dental implants are safe, durable and last a long time.

The procedure to get a dental implant involves two steps. In the first step, a replacement root is fitted and this is then left to fuse with your jaw bone for a few weeks. The replacement root is made up of titanium or a titanium alloy. In the second step, a dental crown is fitted to the implant. They are suitable for both fronts as well as back teeth. Dental implants are also used to hold dentures in place.
When you visit our dental surgery with a missing tooth, your dentist will examine you and advise whether dental implants are a viable option for you. The entire treatment plan lasts many weeks to allow for appropriate adaptation of the implants and will require multiple trips to your dentist.
