Dental Implants 19th October 2014 admin Teeth give quality of life. When our teeth are healthy and attractive, we feel more confident about speaking, eating and smiling. We are never more aware of this than when we lose or damage a tooth. Missing teeth can cause problems in terms of both appearance and function. They can affect our bite, facial definition, bone loss, speech and ability to eat or drink with confidence. Unsightly gaps and damaged teeth can also have a devastating impact on our self-esteem. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss, a new start, a way to turn back the clock and restore the function of your teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium cylinder that is fitted into the jaw bone. Once in place, we are able to secure a ceramic restoration on to the dental implant, thereby creating a permanent new tooth. They can be used to replace the need for dentures and bridges, and offer longevity beyond a denture or a bridge. Dr Shirin Parsno has extensive experience in fitting dental implants. You can book a free consultation with our Treatment Coordinator to discuss whether implants would be right for you. We also accept patient referrals from other dental practices.
