The art of implant dentistry has developed over very many years and now implants are scientifically proven, as a safe and reliable means of replacing absent teeth.
Dental implants are titanium fixings which are placed in the mouth to replace the roots of lost or missing teeth. Use of the latest technology means our dental implants are treated with a biocompatible coating of titanium dioxide. This coating causes the implant to form a bond with human bone and create a unique interface, in short, this biocompatibility allows for ‘osseointegration’ or fusion of implant to bone. This allows us as dentists to replace teeth without drilling or compromising the other teeth in your mouth.

Preventing Bone Loss
When teeth are lost from the mouth bone is lost with them and this bone loss can cause patients mouths to look older than they are. Early tooth loss in life will accelerate ageing and the changes in the facial tissues often associated with aging become apparent. Whether dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or to retain and stabilize removable dentures they will also help maintain the jaw bones preventing further deterioration and bone loss.
