Dental implants provide a long term solution for replacing missing teeth. More and more people are opting in for dental implants - and they have an overall success rate of 95%. 

Unlike fixed bridges or removable dentures, implants will not affect your neighboring healthy teeth ore lead to bone loss in the jaw. These dental implants, made of titanium metal, are embedded into your jawbone - just like natural teeth. 

During a minor surgical procedure, your dental implant is inserted directly into the jawbone in the space vacated by the missing tooth. It will then be left to heal for a period of months before the final crown is attached. During this healing period, the implant actually fuses to the bone surrounding it - this process is called "osseointegration". Because of this process, implants never slip!
