Dental Implants

Here at the Century Dental Centre we have two Dentists who are qualified in Implantology. We are able to replace a missing tooth or many missing teeth using implants. An implant is a titanium screw that is drilled into the bone. A crown may be attached to it to replace one tooth or a bridge/denture used to replace multiple missing teeth. In some cases a single implant may be enough and at other times more than one implant is needed. Implants improve on the stability of dentures by providing them with a firm attachment to prevent them from moving in the mouth. They work as anchors for “long span” (replacing more than one tooth) bridges by allowing a better spread of the chewing force to prevent the bridge from breaking.
