Frequently asked questions

How do dental implants work?

A dental implant is a titanium screw which is placed directly into your jawbone, replacing your missing tooth root. Once fitted the bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse to it and hold the implant firmly in place, much like a natural tooth. A false tooth (a crown or denture) is then fitted to the top of the implant, this will be tailor made to fit with your surrounding teeth.

How long do dental implants last?

With regular brushing and flossing, your dental implant can last a lifetime! The crown may need replacing every 10-15 years due to general wear.
