Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. They are closest thing we have available to natural teeth!
A dental implant is a piece of titanium that looks like a screw. It is put into the jaw where the missing tooth was. Over time, bone grows around the implant, which helps to hold it in place.
An artificial tooth, or crown, is then attached to the metal to fill in the gap left by the missing tooth. The crown is specially made to look like the other teeth in size, shape and colour.
Dental implants can also be used to hold a dental bridge or dentures in place.
Here at the Liverpool dentist, Dr. Jennifer Do both places and restores dental implants. With a thorough consultation, she can determine if you are suitable for an implant. Everything is explained and all questions you might have, are answered.
