What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are made of titanium and are inserted into the bone in place of the missing roots. Titanium becomes attached to the bone in a process known as “osteointegration”.

These implants can be used as follows:

  • to replace a single tooth: usually one implant in placed, onto which a crown is fitted.
  • to replace multiple teeth: two or more implants are used to support a fixed bridge.
  • to stabilise dentures: this method can be very useful for people whose mouths do not give the natural support necessary to hold a conventional denture in place.

Implants are supported by over 30 years of research and have an excellent success rate.

Preventive Philosophy
All treatment is carried out under a preventive ethos with the aid of either the referring dentists hygienist or our own hygienist. Subsequent to completion of treatment regular maintenance is usually recommended.

Our primary aim is to produce functional, highly aesthetic and durable restorations of the highest quality. With the exacting procedures required we work closely with our technicians and ceramists who share our attention to detail.
