These are the gold standard in replacing missing teeth although they may not be suitable for all patients.
The implants themselves are tiny threaded posts constructed from titanium (a naturally strong but bio-inert element) that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing
Implants are an ideal solution for replacing missing teeth, bridges or dentures without affecting adjacent teeth and are the next best thing to natural teeth. They can also support bridges and provide excellent stability to dentures.
