These days, losing a tooth does not necessarily mean that you have to cope with a permanent gap in your teeth, or start wearing dentures – for an increasing number of patients, dental implants are the answer.
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is placed into the jawbone. Over time the bone grows around and bonds with the titanium to provide a secure base, just like a tooth root.
The implants provide a stable base for strong, natural looking replacement teeth – either a single missing tooth or a bridge replacing a number of teeth. They can also hold dentures firmly in place, making eating and speaking easier and more comfortable.
Our oral surgeon, Dr Sreenivasan, is experienced in placing implants, which means you can be confident that you are in very good hands.
Please book a consultation at our practice in Shrewsbury if you would like more information and to find out if dental implants are right for you.
