Dental implants are one of the most popular and natural ways of replacing missing or putting an end to the problem of ill-fitting dentures. People lose teeth for all sorts of reasons and for many it can affect what they eat, how they speak and for some it can result in a complete loss of self confidence.
A dental implant is a small, screw-like fixture that acts as a replacement for a natural tooth root. Dental implants are usually made of titanium (a bio-compatible material) and are carefully placed into the jawbone, normally under local anaesthetic. Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for fixing individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges or dentures.
