The implant is a titanium root inserted into the bone of the jaw to create a strong and durable anchor for a crown or removable dental appliance.
This procedure was first developed during the sixties to replace missing teeth. The modern procedure avoids damaging healthy teeth and allows a bridge to be worn which is much more comfortable than removable dentures.
Replacing teeth is not simply a question of appearance. It restores wellbeing and chewing comfort to patients suffering from tooth loss.
