An implant is a bionic tooth root that lets you restore missing teeth – this should be before an implant crown which is designed to provide you with a natural looking and fully functional tooth. The implant is made from specially prepared titanium, which allows it to integrate fully with your jawbone (in about 6 to 8 weeks).
For multiple missing teeth, implants can be used as a base to form a bridge to span a larger area without affecting any teeth nearby.
Benefits of dental implants include:
Keeping your dentures in place (which stops problems with loose dentures and allows harder foods to be eaten)
Wide-ranging solutions to suit everyone's budget.
