Dental implants are a replacement tooth root made of titanium that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
Their main purpose is to bond with the jaw and provide a secure, long-term solution to restore your chewing ability, improve appearance and prevent bone loss.
Osseointegration is an amazing process by which normal healthy bones form a direct interface with a dental implant ensuring an extremely strong long term connection.
This then gives the perfect platform for replacement teeth, dentures or another prosthesis.
Why do I need a Dental Implant?
There are many reasons why you may need one or more dental implants.
It’s important to know if you are considering dental implant solutions to pursue them sooner rather than later.
Without dental implants, a missing or removed tooth will cause the surrounding bone to shrink away as the bone is no longer required.
If multiple teeth are lost or removed more bone is lost affecting facial muscles which can cause impaired speech, premature ageing and other serious complications.
Some common reasons for dental implant solutions are:
Missing, infected, cracked or unsightly tooth
Missing, infected, cracked or unsightly teeth
Accidents involving teeth and/or facial structure
Sporting injuries involving teeth or facial structure
Permanent or temporary denture solutions

Dental Implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They offer the strongest and closest artificial replacement to natural teeth by forming a strong base for crowns, bridges or dentures.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that has been surgically placed and replaces the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The jaw bone then grows around the titanium screw, adopting it as its own and forming a naturally strengthened base for your prosthetic tooth or teeth. Implants are the strongest and most permanent solution to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
Along with replacing lost teeth, implants help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. This means they also support the facial skeleton and, indirectly, the soft tissue structures — gum tissues, cheeks and lips. Dental implants help you eat, chew, smile, talk and look completely natural.
