Dental implants have been successfully used for more than 30 years to replace a missing tooth or teeth, be it through an accident, decay or simply age.

We know, whatever the reason, losing a tooth or teeth can be traumatic and have a significant impact on the rest of your life. Previously a bridge or dentures were the most popular ways to replace missing teeth, however, these prosthetic options can make eating uncomfortable or make people feel self-conscious of their smile.

Advances in technology have made implants more accessible and they have become the favoured option to replace missing teeth. Overall, dental implants produce a more natural outcome, both aesthetically and functionally.

An implant effectively replaces the root of your tooth and is surgically inserted into the jaw. Made from titanium, a material that is compatible with your body, the implant easily integrates with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, which takes between 6 and 12 weeks. After the healing process is complete, a crown, denture or bridge is placed on top of the implants and functions in the same way as natural teeth.
