Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants and what can they do for me?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The dental implant is placed in the bone of either the upper or lower jaw to hold a replacement crown or bridge in place. The treatment can be more conservative than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implant restorations are so natural looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth. The minor surgical proceedure to place the implant is painlessly carried out under local anaesthetic with mild post treatment discomfort.
