Implant Dentistry

Implant Dentistry


A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth. It is categorised at prosthetic dentistry although it is also viewed as a form of cosmetic dentistry.

Dental implants are an important treatment for preventing bone loss, which is a common side effect of a missing tooth. If there is gap between the teeth then what tends to happen is a failure of the bone tissue to renew itself which causes it to atrophy.

This can affect the shape of the jaw and your facial appearance, resulting in a sunken cheeked look which is less than attractive.

But this can be prevented with a dental implant. The implant is situated within the bone of the jaw where it stimulates new bone growth and retains the structure of your jaw.
