Dental implants are made from titanium, and are used to replace missing teeth. They are placed surgically, and then a new crown is placed once integration with the surrounding jawbone has taken place. Implants have become the preferred option for replacing missing teeth, as they are permanent, look and act just like your natural teeth and even help stop your jawbone from atrophying, which can cause sagging facial tissue.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, a group of two or more missing teeth, or an entire arch. Implants are also increasingly used by denture wearers to secure their dentures and prevent them from slipping or clicking.
We use Straumann implants at One Wood Street. With a huge clinical base for their research, and worldwide support, Straumann implants can give you back the function you had before the tooth was lost. For more information on Straumann visit www.straumann.co.uk.
