Dental implants are rapidly becoming the preferred treatment for anyone seeking the optimal method of replacing missing teeth.
There have been amazing developments in this field in recent years. A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root that is carefully placed into the jawbone on to which is firmly fixed an single artificial tooth or a fixed denture. Implants offer you a very real and successful alternative to dentures or bridges and we welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs with you at any time. Our principal Dentists have been working with this technology since it's introduction to general Dentistry and staff regularly attend lectures on the latest Dental discoveries.

A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth, which consists of a root and a crown. The crown is the visible part of your tooth. It is used to chew food and is therefore the most susceptible to cavities. The crown is attached to the jawbone by way of the root. When decay has gone deep enough or when a periodontal disease has advanced enough to warrant an extraction, the entire tooth, root and all, is taken out. The dental implant is a titanium root that gets fitted into a socket that we create in your jaw. Once the root heals, we place an artificial crown on top. The new crown is customized to match your bite and the colour of your teeth.
