If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental implant is the most advanced way to restore it, artificially replacing your tooth with a small titanium post. The post is inserted directly into the jawbone during a short surgical procedure. We can use dental implants to support single crowns, bridges or even full-arch dentures.

What are the Advantages of Choosing Dental Implants?

Dental implants are self-supporting and will have only beneficial effects on your dental health. The implant post protects your bone, preventing bone deterioration. Implant-retained teeth provide the correct support for your facial muscles and prevent remaining natural teeth from shifting position.

Will My Implant Teeth Look and Feel Natural?

Here at Apple Dental, we use computer guidance when planning and placing our implants. This ensures your implants are inserted into precisely the right location, using a key-hole surgical technique that is smoother and faster. Computer guidance provides a more successful treatment, so that once your implants are restored with a crown, bridge or denture, they will look natural while being fully functional. If you require implant crowns, we can generally create these using CEREC CAD/CAM technology and which provides precision-fitted and highly aesthetic restorations and reducing the number of appointments required.
