Dental implants are an ideal replacement option for people suffering from the loss of one or more teeth, providing a secure base for further dental restorations. Dental implants enable patients to chew properly, retain their healthy teeth and feel confident and attractive. The use of dental implants is a scientifically proven treatment that has been successfully used in the last three decades by qualified dentists and surgeons worldwide. A dental implant is an extremely strong and durable ‘post’ that is surgically implanted in the jaw bone to mimic the function of a natural tooth root. The implant is made from a biocompatible material, usually titanium, to which your jaw bone naturally bonds over a period of around three months. Once this has happened, a prosthetic, custom-made tooth is permanently attached to the implant.
