Dental Implants

One of the greatest innovations in modern dentistry has been the development of dental implants.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jaw bone to replace missing natural tooth roots. Implants and their attached crowns closely mimic the look and function of real teeth. They can make an attractive and secure alternative to dentures and bridges.

Dental implant techniques can replace one or several missing teeth. In some cases, an entire set of artificial teeth can be carried on dental implants. In some cases, instead of an artificial tooth, an implant can be fitted with special clips or attachments (similar to press-studs) to hold a denture. The studs will minimise movement of the denture.
