When a tooth cannot be restored and has to be removed, there are several options for its replacement.
The usual options available are a removable denture, a bridge (which is fixed to the teeth next to the gap created by the removal of the tooth) or with a dental implant. All of the dentists at 53 can guide you on the best treatment option for you in relation to stability, longevity and aesthetic result.
Dental implants are extremely successful and the closest option to a natural tooth. The titanium implants are placed in the jawbone which heals and integrates the titanium implant into the bone.
Once integrated, the implant can be restored with a crown.
