Replace single tooth

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. Dental Implant have proven to be reliable, and their high success is supported by decades of clinical experience.

Dental implants are the treatment of choice for people missing one, a few or all of their teeth. They can also be used to replace failing teeth or teeth affected by gum disease.

The dental implant is made of high grade titanium that fuses with our own bone. It is strong and durable and can be coated to enhance healing.

Tooth movement after extraction

A dental implant is an ideal option to replace a single missing tooth. It is better than leaving the gap open as this could adversely influence the position of the adjacent teeth which will commonly tilt into the gap. It is also more difficult to clean teeth that are in front of or behind a gap.

What does a dental implant look likeThe dental implant acts as an artificial root. It is replaces the space that was previously occupied with a dental root.

Once the dental implant has fused with your bone, a customised crown is placed on top of the implant. The final result looks, feels and functions like a real tooth.
