Suitable for replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants give the appearance of natural teeth through the use of crowns which are anchored into the jaw. A titanium screw is inserted into the jaw bone and a crown placed on top to help prevent further damage. Once in place, the patient can eat, drink and speak as normal and the implant will remain in the jaw as it is not removable.
At Grote Street Dental, we’ll discuss exactly what is involved in the process if you’re interested in finding out more about dental implants. For some, the procedure may be too invasive, and they might prefer to choose dentures, while for others, dental implants can be the perfect remedy.
If you do decide to get dental implants, then we’ll make sure you’re fully informed before we begin treatment, and will answer any questions or queries you may have.
