What is a dental implant?
A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth. The implant is a titanium rod designed to replace the tooth root and to hold an artificial tooth or teeth in place.
The dental implant is inserted under local anesthetic and, once healed ,it acts as a base for the visible top of the tooth. It is fixed securely in place and feels much like a natural tooth.
The dental implant can be used to replace
It does not require healthy neighbouring teeth to be ground down as might be required in bridgework, and it can be cleaned just like your other teeth.
