What are Dental Implants
1. The Crown
This is the visible part of the tooth. Usually one crown is attached to one implant, however if three replacement adjoining teeth are needed, it is common practise to use two implants and place 3 crowns on top. If all the teeth on the lower jaw need replacing, then as few as four implants may be needed to hold all the replacement teeth in place.
2. The Post
This is a post which is used to attach the crown onto the dental implant. When fitted correctly, it cannot be seen once the crown has been placed on it.
3. The Dental Implant
This is the part which is placed into the jawbone.
Why choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are recognised by many as the best method for replacing missing teeth, providing a more sustainable, functional and life-like solution than more traditional techniques such as bridges and dentures.
They can provide the preferred solution when dentures are loose, gaps exist in the front or back of the mouth as single teeth or large bridge work to full mouth reconstructions.
