Gaps in the mouth don’t always need to be filled with dentures.
In some cases, they can be filled by:
A dental implant mimics nature: it is designed to be firmly anchored in the jaw and to hold the tooth in place. The implant is usually made from titanium alloy, a material generally well tolerated by the human body. Also, titanium has been shown to bond well with the human bone.
Natural looking replacement teeth are held in the mouth attached to titanium implants. Implants are a long-term solution and can be used in most situations where teeth are missing, particularly if you have complete dentures.
We use Straumann® dental implants at the practice, an organisation renowned for its exceptional log standing quality and reliability. It is one of the most extensively scientifically documented implant systems in the world.
