A dental implant is an artificial tooth that a dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture. 
Dental implants are an ideal option for people with good oral health because they do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support. They can also be used the provide you with fixed dental replacements that are both natural looking and very functional. Implants look much better and can feel better than traditional bridges. They can also be life changing for denture wearing patients, providing a sturdy anchor for dentures. Dental Implants are very durable and will last many years, with good care many implants last a lifetime. Not everyone is eligible for Dental Implants, it depends on your current oral health your dentist will discuss the options with you.
