Dental Implants have been used for over 40 years and are one of the most successful treatment options in dentistry today. They are made of medical grade titanium and no biological reaction has ever been reported.
Dental Implants allow the replacement of missing teeth with a substitute tooth that looks, acts and feels like a natural tooth. When you are missing a natural tooth, the teeth on either side of the gap may shift and tip over into the space. This makes it harder to clean these teeth and decay or gum disease may result.
An implant can fill the gap and maintain the rest of your natural teeth in the ideal position and prevent them becoming crooked. An implant can also replace a denture that you have worn for years.
