Dental implants are a modern way of replacing missing teeth. The procedure involves placement of a titanium screw into the jaw bone which is then given time to fuse or integrate around the implant. Once this has successfully been achieved, a false tooth can be fixed onto it. Dental implants provide excellent aesthetics with natural looking teeth. Some of the other advantages are that they can help preserve bone levels and the procedure does not require preparation of the adjacent teeth.
Dr Krina Patel has several years of experience placing implants and will explain the process thoroughly before commencing treatment.
