Having a missing tooth can be stressful and can impact your life, both physically and emotionally. A gap in your smile often leads to embarrassment and could eventually lead to further health problems.

Dental implants offer you the possibility to have a permanent restoration that mimics your natural tooth’s root and structure. This means you’ll smile, chew, and speak as before and feel confident in your smile.

Here is a brief overview of how dental implants can benefit your smile:

  • Long-lasting or permanent solution
  • Keeps other teeth in place and healthy
  • Allows for natural chewing without concern
  • Preserves your facial structure
  • Long-term whole-health
Our office has an in-house specialist to place our dental implants. Dr. Francis Hunte is a prosthodontist so has expertise in dental prosthesis such as dental implants. Your health could not be in better hands!

How Do Implants Work?

Three elements, one outstanding result.

Artificial Root

Made from titanium and placed into your jawbone, this small post acts as your missing tooth root. Once fused with your bone, it creates a solid foundation for your restoration.

Abutment

Much like an anchor, this small element is used to attach the implant post to your new restoration. It creates a firm and reliable connection for your chosen dental restoration.

Restoration

Dr. Hunte can design and create various restorations to be fitted on top of your implant. These include custom-made dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.
