Dental Implants are essentially a substitute for a natural root, they are placed in the jaw bone in a position where you have a missing tooth.
Once fitted they provide the foundation for either a replacement single tooth, Can be used in combination with other implants to support bridgework or stabilise dentures.
Dental Implants will replace a missing tooth or teeth without using your existing teeth. This can be advantageous because a bridge may involve compromising a good tooth, which may shorten its lifespan in some cases.
It may be that many teeth are missing, in which case implants are the only option.
Denture stabilisation can only be achieved effectively with dental implants.
An implants is a titanium screw, which is gently placed in your jawbone taking the place of a natural root. The procedure is carried out using only local anaesthetic and there is little or no discomfort during the process. Although the majority of patients suffer little more than mild discomfort afterwards, some patients may get a degree of soreness and sometimes the area may become swollen. This would be the same feeling as after having a tooth out.

There are two parts to every tooth. The crown and the root. The crown is the visible part and the root is the unseen part which anchors the tooth in your jawbone, providing stable support for your crown. When an entire tooth is lost – crown and root – shrinkage of the jawbone may occur making the face look older. Dental implants can stop this process.
There are many ways to replace tooth crowns, but only dental implants can replace the entire tooth including both crown and root. Dental implants look, feel and function like your own natural teeth.
The average denture patient with an excellent fitting denture eats at 15-20% efficiency when compared to a person with natural teeth. As the jawbone shrinks, your chewing efficiency is reduced even more, making it difficult to eat certain foods. Dental implants, on the other hand, can restore chewing efficiency comparable to that of natural teeth.
