Dental Implants are small titanium rods that are inserted into the bone where a tooth was. These are then used, in effect, as artificial roots to place a crown on top off. Implants can be used to replace anything from a single tooth to a full arch bridge supported on several implants.
At Skipton Road we will liaise with an implant surgeon to ensure that, should you select implants as your treatment of choice, you will receive a high standard of professional care to restore your mouth to function and health.
A single tooth dental implant is the most popular replacement and is a great solution to a single missing tooth. Dental implant look and feel like natural teeth and actually need the same regular maintenance and cleansing – something our dental hygiene therapists will guide you with.
Multiple dental implants can be used to replace many missing teeth right up to a full arch of teeth. We can also arrange for implants to be placed to help locate and retain a full denture in place, these are very useful if you have minimal bone available to mould a denture around.
