A Dental Implant is a device designed to permanently replace missing teeth.
The replacement of missing teeth is important to a patient’s oral health and overall well-being. Not only do missing teeth affect chewing ability and cause crowding, chipping, or tilting of surrounding teeth, they can also make a person feel self-conscious and inhibited from partaking in day-to-day activities.
Individuals with missing teeth can often feel embarrassed, irritated and self-conscious. Dental implants are now recognised as routine treatment for a full range of dental issues from replacing a single tooth, to full oral rehabilitation, or simply for reliable denture retention.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
