Nothing drains our confidence quite like a failing smile. When gaps start to appear, day-to-day things like eating, speaking and smiling can become a challenge to say the least. If you are thinking of putting your favourite foods back on the menu and that confident smile back on your face, implants may be your guardian angel.
A dental implant is the ultimate solution to replace missing teeth and has shown high levels of success for millions of patients. As well as replacing single teeth, they can be used to replace all of your teeth and are also great at securing your dentures – say goodbye to that messy glue!
The design of a dental implant is based on that of a natural tooth which is commonly described as having two main parts: the crown that sits above the gums and the root that sits securely below the gum.
