Dental implants provide an effective and long-lasting way to replace missing teeth. They are tiny titanium posts which are surgically placed and, after a few months, fuse with the surrounding bone. Once healed, implants act just like natural tooth roots, providing a solid foundation for crowns, bridges or dentures.
Dental implants can restore your smile, improve how you eat and speak, prevent shrinkage of the jaw bone, and help keep existing teeth firmly in place.
You should look after your dental implants by maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, with regular brushing and flossing. It is also important to attend check-ups to ensure your implants last as long as possible.
