Tooth loss is a problem that affects many thousands of people every year and may occur as a result of tooth decay, gum disease or trauma.
A dental implant is a titanium post that functions as an artificial root for your tooth, it is surgically placed into your jawbone with which it fuses (integrates) over time to provide a solid support for a single crown, a bridge or a denture.
Dental implants provide a solution to missing teeth, which does not require preparation and damage to neighbouring healthy tooth tissue (unlike traditional bridges).
Although dental implants are a more expensive option than tooth replacement with dentures or bridges they tend to last longer and offer a better quality of life, as they provide a solution that is the closest you could possibly get to a natural tooth.
