Dental Implants @ Leith, Edinburgh
WHAT ARE IMPLANTS?
Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth.
Implants are a fixed option for replacing missing teeth. A screw is placed in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth. This acts like the root of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or dentures. A tooth implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. Tooth implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Implant treatment normally has two stages. First, the implant is placed in the jaw. Then, once the jaw has healed, replacement teeth are attached to the implant. In some situations it is possible for temporary teeth to be attached to an implant at the time of fitting.
