Implants are the latest technology in dentistry to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a two phase treatment option where an artificial root is placed under the gum line. Once this integrates with the jaw bone, it can then support single or multiple crowns.
This tooth replacement option improves function and comfort, as well as providing the closest appearance and feel to natural teeth. Regular 6 monthly check up and cleans are recommended to help maintain the health of the gum and bone surrounding your implant.
Although implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement, like your natural teeth, require excellent home care and professional maintenance. It’s important that the gums surrounding your implant are professionally cleaned every 6 months to ensure the gum and bone support surrounding your implant is healthy.
