Dental implants are the best way to replace your missing teeth. They are comfortable, discreet and aesthetic and feel much more comfortable than conventional bridges or dentures.

Tooth loss can also lead to a loss of jaw bone which causes shrinking and shrivelling of the face. However, implants can preserve the jaw bone which also helps preserve facial volume, appearance and contour.
For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place. This means that no damage is done to your natural teeth.
Implants can also be used to help secure dentures and bridges to your mouth. As a result, the dentures or bridges will not slip or shift in your mouth making it easier for you to chew, smile and speak and have a better quality of life.
