Missing teeth can affect a person’s chewing ability and cause surrounding teeth to crowd, chip or tilt. Dental Implants offer a permanent solution – artificial teeth secured in the jaw that look, function and feel like natural teeth.
Dental implants are surgically attached to the upper or lower jaw bone using anchors made of titanium, securing the artificial tooth in place.
Although a great solution for most people, dental implants are not suitable to everyone. Ask the friendly staff at Kensington Dental for a consultation to assess the suitability of dental implants for you.
What is a dental implant and can it replace a missing tooth or teeth?
Dental implants are the ideal option for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that restores full functionality and aesthetic appearance. The implant is attached to the jaw, acting as an artificial tooth root. A replacement tooth known as a crown is then attached to the implant providing a natural looking, permanent replacement tooth that is practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
