Missing Teeth – Dental Implant

Teeth can be lost as a result of dental decay, gum disease and dental trauma. The condition of missing one or more teeth is called edentulism.

Missing teeth can be replaced in a number of ways including dentures, bridges or implants.

Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements and are used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.

The dentist will assess the individual situation and recommend the appropriate restoration for you.
