Dental implants are titanium screws which are surgically inserted into your jawbone, to which restorations can be attached once the implant completely bonds with your bone. We can refer you to a specialist implant practitioner for placement of your implant.
Once your implant has bonded, over a series of appointments we will construct your new prosthetic tooth restoration. With dental implants, you can once again experience the great feeling of a complete smile that is secure, stable and reliable.
Dental implants can also be used to support dentures, in cases where all your natural teeth are missing, but enough bone remains in the jaw to bond to implants. An implant-supported denture uses special attachments that snap onto your dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures are constructed on an acrylic base made to resemble your natural gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to this base, which uses at least two implants for support.
Implant-supported dentures are a great alternative to regular dentures, being far more stable, and making it easier to speak and chew foods you couldn’t eat before, without worrying about the denture becoming loose or falling out of your mouth.
