Implant Dentistry

Dental implants are used to replace teeth that have been lost to infection or trauma. They are a great alternative to bridges or removable dentures. However, there are now a wide variety of different types of implants available that are suited to various situations. Choosing the correct type of implant for you and having the correct pre- and post- treatment programs will help to maintain the longevity of the implant treatment to achieve success.

Implants and Gum Disease

Implants (metal titanium rods) have fast become the option of choice when faced with missing teeth. They provide a suitable fixed solution where you can have teeth that do not have to be taken out like dentures. However, they too can become infected leading to deterioration of the gum and bone in which the implant is embedded - ultimately leading to failure of the implant.
