What are dental implants?

Dental implants are used to provide a permanent replacement for missing teeth, whereby an artificial root is placed into the jaw bone.  The procedure takes place under local anaesthetic and is completely pain free.

After it has been fitted, a healing screw and temporary dentures are also fitted provisionally until the bone tissue grows correctly around the implant, creating a strong bond. This process can take a few weeks to a few months and forms the basis of an extremely stable dental prosthesis (crown, bridge). When you are ready, the healing screw will be removed and a support pillar is used to link the implant with the permanent bridge or crown. You will now be able to chew and eat quite normally. Dental implants last for a very long time, indeed for several decades. With Novacorpus, you can have top brand dental implants fitted, ones that are also used in UK, but at far less expense.
