WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are fitted directly into the jawbone where teeth are missing. A crown or bridge is then put onto the implant to restore your smile.
Implants are put in first, usually several months before, so that it integrates with bone and your mouth has time to heal before the crown or bridge is added.
WHY HAVE A DENTAL IMPLANT?
Unlike dentures, implants behave like natural teeth and are not removable which many patients like. This does however mean that careful cleaning is much more important.
Although implants do not “decay” like teeth, they can fail due to poor gum health. We recommend regular hygiene treatment for anyone who has implants.
