An Implant is the closest thing to getting a missing tooth back again. It does not involve removing tooth structure from adjacent teeth. Dental Implants have a 97% success rate over 10 years. We can use Implants to support multiple teeth on bridges as well as crowns and as an aid to improving the stability of dentures.
- A dental implant replaces the tooth and builds a foundation for the dental crown.
- The surface material of the dental implant can maintain existing jaw bone levels and prevent further bone loss.
- Neighbouring teeth are kept intact, because the replacement tooth is directly connected to the implant.
