If you are concerned about missing teeth or looking for a long-term alternative to dentures then a dental implant could be the safest and most natural looking solution. We understand that losing teeth can affect more than just your appearance, it can affect the way that you speak, eat and your general confidence. We can help you to look and feel better for longer with our dental implants.
What is a dental implant? Well, put simply, it’s a replacement for your natural tooth. If you have lost teeth due to accident or disease then implants can be a great permanent alternative to dentures or crowns, to help restore your natural smile.
The implant process
We start out with a consultation with Dr Phil Bennett, our implant dentist. A titanium screw is attached to your jawbone, to which we’ll fix a dental crown or denture. An implant is as secure as a normal tooth. Dr Bennett will match the shape, colour and size of the tooth being replaced so it will look as natural as possible.
At Forward Dental we use the highest quality surgical grade titanium and zirconium – which research shows are the best implant materials as they are strong yet light and very long lasting. With proper care, our implants can mean your smile lasts for years.
