What Are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are a standard of care for patients looking to replace 1 or more missing teeth. 
An implant is a metal or ceramic post that is surgically placed in the jaw bone as a substitute for the root structure of a missing tooth.

Implants are used to replace a single or several teeth or to support dentures. What makes an implant so strong is that the jaw bone fuses around the implant to hold it in place. The success rate of an implant is 95%-98% .

The main benefits of Dental Implants are that they stabilise, protect and preserve the surrounding gum tissue and teeth. Without replacing a missing tooth the bone is reabsorbed and surrounding teeth can move and alter your bite.

Dental Implants are long lasting, can restore your smile, boost confidence and improve your oral health.

After your consultation with one of our specialists, our team will create a treatment plan specific for you!
