How do Dental Implants work?
Dental Implants are carried out under local anaesthetic and can be undertaken with or without sedation. It’s an excellent choice to replace missing teeth.
There is no need to prepare (drill) adjacent healthy teeth as with conventional crown and bridge work.
A dental implant (also known as a tooth implant) consists of a titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw. Implant surgery is a prominent method of tooth replacement.
Tooth implants are used to restore gaps in your mouth by supporting one or more false teeth (e.g. a crown, denture or bridge)
Having implants placed is a simple procedure which will allow you to eat and smile with confidence
The dental implant then becomes surrounded by bone and acts as a stable base to support a cosmetic crown.
