Dental Implants

What are they?

Dental implants have revolutionised the way dentists deliver care to their patients. By imitating natural teeth, Implants are the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth.

An artificial root comprising a titanium screw is placed into the bone. A porcelain crown, bridge or a denture is then placed over this to provide a secure, functional and cosmetic result.
