What is a dental implant?

When one or several teeth are missing, it’s important to have them replaced to maintain your oral health. One option for tooth replacement is a dental implant. Their natural appearance and optimum level of comfort mean that dental implants can not only replace missing roots, but also support replacement teeth.
 
Made of titanium or titanium alloy, a dental implant is an artificial root that the dentist embeds in the jawbone, and which forms a base to hold the artificial tooth in place.
 
It’s essential to be in a good state of health to receive a dental implant. To find out more about the procedure, arrange an appointment with our team. We’ll give you a personalised assessment, so we can offer you the service that is most suitable for your needs.
