Tooth replacement can improve your chewing ability,facial aesthetics and speech.

Dental Implants Surgery

For individuals with one or multiple missing teeth in different areas of their mouth, a dental implant offers a potential solution. It involves a surgical procedure where an implant or screw is placed in the jaw, serving as a permanent foundation for a missing tooth. 

The implant is topped with a crown that closely resembles a natural tooth and can last for many years. Importantly, neighboring teeth remain unaffected by the implant.

Implant Supported Dentures

Unlike conventional dentures that sit on the gums, implant supported dentures are  attached to the implants placed in the jaw. This treatment is suitable when there are no teeth present in the jaw but there is sufficient bone to support the implants.
