Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Technically, the implant is a screw made from a titanium alloy, which the body almost never rejects. It is secured in the jawbone, just like a natural tooth root. The dental implant fuses with your jawbone to give the prosthetic tooth replacement permanent support.
Your teeth are integral to your digestive system, your speech and your appearance. Dental implants are an excellent option if you’re in pain or have teeth missing. Very often they look and feel like your own natural teeth. Don’t let teeth problems affect your confidence, health or relationships.
Your teeth are vital to the strength of your jaw. Having teeth maintains the strength of your jawbone. If you’re missing teeth, your jawbone deteriorates. That’s why all your teeth are important. The ones at the back may not have an impact on your appearance, but their mechanical function is crucial to the integrity of your jaw and health. They support your bite and protect your front teeth from being overloaded.
Implants match your natural teeth and give your mouth a strong, permanent foundation in a way that is impossible to achieve with any kind of denture.

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth.
Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Because dental implants are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
With dentures your teeth can slip causing you to slur your speech. With dental implants you don’t need to worry about that.
Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favourite foods with confidence and without pain.
Implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
Better oral health.
Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
With proper good care, dental implants last a lifetime.
Dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of taking your dentures out and putting them back in.
Dental implants are made to match your natural teeth. They're a vastly superior alternative to dentures, which can slip causing you to slur your speech. Implants eliminate the discomfort and inconvenience of removable dentures.
