People lose teeth all the time, either through trauma when teeth are knocked out or due to decay, gum disease or old age. Whatever the reason for loosing your teeth they need to be replaced both for aesthetic and functional reasons.
Dental implants are now becoming the preferred option to replace missing teeth as they provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue. Dental implants are also commonly used to securely fix a denture in place, avoiding embarrassing denture slippage or denture fixatives significantly improving the quality of your life.
