Dental implants are a realistic, strong and permanent way of replacing missing teeth.
They can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth, and can also be used as a much more comfortable and convenient method of keeping dentures in place.
Implant retained dentures makes the dentures far more secure, and makes it easier to eat and speak with them in place.
Implants are small devices which are, in effect, false tooth roots.
Made out of titanium metal, they are placed carefully into the jaw bone and left in place until they integrate with the bone.
The crowns which are made to go on top of the implant are usually screwed on.
Great care and maintenance are needed to protect these implants.
Not everyone is suitable for implants so a thorough assessment has to be made with the specialist. Here at Byways, you don’t need to be referred. Through the help of our in-house specialist, implants can now be performed here.
