Watch a Live Surgery
With Dr Sheraz Shafiq, Implantologist
A dental implant can be used as a long term alternative for natural missing teeth, or to anchor a denture onto allowing a more secure, comfortable and natural looking fit. It has a metal screw or cylinder shaped rod, usually made from titanium or titanium alloy. Which is then anchored into the bone.
This procedure can be performed to replace single or multiple teeth. A crown or denture can then be placed securely over this component allowing a natural looking smile.
