Dental implants are a permanent solution to fill in missing teeth by placing sterile titanium implants into the jaw bone to allow the placement of crowns and bridges. Implants can also be used along with dentures to help in providing support and retention. The practice has specialised facilities to provide this form of treatment to a high standard of care.
In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns bridges or dentures.
