What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is similar to an artificial root, to which a new tooth is fitted. Implants are essentially little titanium screws inserted to the bone of the upper or lower jaw. Once fitted, the screw can support a crown, bridge, removable or fixed partial dentures.
The implants replace the root of a missing tooth and are the best solution for the job, notably improving the patient’s oral & dental health, appearance and self-esteem.
Today a number of resources enable us to fit dental implants painlessly. Thanks to local anaesthesia and the administration of a tranquillizer, the treatment is pain and stress-free.
