Dental implants are fixtures of titanium which are surgically placed into your jaw bone. They act as replacement tooth roots, providing an anchor for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth. Implants help eliminate problems with poor fitting dentures; they prevent the false tooth or teeth from moving around, increasing your eating enjoyment and confidence. Implants are increasingly being used as replacements for some kinds of bridges and removable partial dentures and even to aid orthodontics.
We have been involved in implant dental reconstruction for over 20 years. We work closely with a team of highly experienced Oral surgeons, periodontists and prosthodontists to try to achieve an ideal result for you. Many general dentists attempt implant placement but in general this results in a compromised result .
Generally, implant placement is done while you are sedated or asleep.
