Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. With the latest up to date scanning, imaging and surgical techniques we can replace the teeth comfortably and predictably.
Dental implant design and material development over the last 60 years has meant dental implants can replace single teeth, a few teeth or even a full set of teeth, giving a highly aesthetic, functional and long-lasting result.
Designed to mimic nature, a dental implant has a ‘root’ part made from biocompatible titanium, which your body heals with to fix it into position; and a ‘tooth’ part that fixes onto the root. By copying nature’s design, a dental implant can have the longest lifespan of any treatment used to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants can improve someone’s quality of life by helping them smile, speak and chew with renewed confidence and improved appearance.
