Dental implants involve surgically positioning metal posts or frames into the jawbone (mandible) to allow our dentist to mount your replacement teeth on top. Because these implants are fused to your bone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. This is often the preferable restoration option in comparison to dentures and bridges where you are required to ground down adjacent teeth to hold the new replacement tooth/teeth.
However, like most restorative procedures, you would be required to have a thorough consultation with our dentist. The consultation will determine if dental implants are suitable for your unique situation, considering gum health, bone structure, bone size and oral hygiene. If you are in good oral and general health, this treatment may be an open option for you.
