Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Essentially, a dental implant is an anchor, to which one can attach an artificial tooth or crown. The dental implant is inserted into the jawbone and left to naturally attach itself. Once it is firmly in place, the tooth or crown can then be secured.
By carefully selecting materials, artificial teeth are matched to the colour of the surrounding teeth, offering a natural looking solution for anyone with a missing tooth.
Dr Briggs strives to ensure that his patients understand all parts of the implant process. It is essential for Dr Briggs to create a thorough and workable treatment plan for his patients that can then be implemented step by step, at a comfortable pace for his patients. The end result is a fully functional, natural looking replacement tooth.
Dental Implants also play a vital role in the prevention of further deterioration of your teeth.
