Dental Implants

Implants are titanium rods which are surgically placed into the jawbone and act as anchors for fastening dentures or crowns onto. Implants are an alternative to dentures or bridgework, but they are more expensive and involve surgery over a period of several months.

Implants are a safe, well-established, tried-and-tested treatment and many believe that implants, much like natural teeth, last for as long as you care for them. So how well you look after your implants and whether you attend regular maintenance appointments - will have the biggest impact on how long they will last.
