A dental implant can be used to replace badly damaged or missing teeth completely, from root to crown. Sometimes, an existing tooth is so badly damaged and decayed that there is no usable parts of the tooth left. The process starts with a titanium implant that takes the place of the tooth root and is securely placed inside the jaw where it fuses with the bone. To the top of the implant, a tooth crown is attached which is the part of the tooth you will see. It is made to fit in perfectly with your existing teeth, both in shape and colour. The end result is a strong tooth which you can use just like any other, eat, smile and jump around, all with confidence!
