Dental implants are a revolutionary method used to replace one or several missing teeth. A dental implant replicates a natural tooth root as it bonds with the jawbone to become a solid structural foundation to which a crown, bridge or when several implants are placed, denture can be secured.
Receiving an implant requires meticulous preparation and a skilled hand. In a minor surgical procedure, the dentist gently guides the implant into a position pre-determined during examinations and evaluation of detailed radiographs. The procedure is completed under local anaesthetic with many people who receive dental implants report it as being a comfortable procedure and often can return to work and their normal daily life the following day. The end result is a natural looking, undetectable replacement for the missing tooth.
