Dental implants allow the replacement of one or more teeth without compromising the health of the adjacent natural teeth. Implants allow teeth to be made which can replace partial or complete dentures and can be utilized to solidly support loose dentures.

Implants are inserted into prepared openings in the jawbone.  Small titanium cylinders are attached to each implant with a screw.  These small post cylinders protrude through the gum.  Your dentist can then construct teeth which will be attached to the cylinders.  Occasionally, additional soft tissue surgery or bone grafting may be required to establish sufficient bone and soft tissue prior to insertion of implants.  The long term success of implants depends on excellent oral hygiene similar to that required for caring for natural teeth. 

General anaesthesia or sedation is often recommended for implant surgery.
