A dental implant is similar to an artificial root. Implants are essentially little titanium screws inserted to the jaw bone. They replace the root of a missing tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges, removable partial dentures, etc. They are the best option for replacing a missing tooth.
Today the majority of patients attending a dental surgery not only want to solve their dental health problems, they also want to make their smile look better. We offer tooth whitening treatments, porcelain veneers and dental contouring, among others. All are aesthetic treatments used to improve the colour and shape of a patient’s teeth.
Dentures are artificial replacements for natural teeth which also rectify jaw alignment and vertically straighten the teeth. Dentures improve mastication, helping the patient to articulate and correctly pronounce words while enhancing their smile.
The purpose of tooth fillings and reconstructions is to save your natural teeth so that they don’t have to be taken out; no artificial implant is better than the teeth you were born with.
