Dental implants

Dental implants as we know them today were invented in 1952 by a Swedish orthopaedic surgeon named Per-Ingvar Brånemark. They are now considered the standard of care for replacement of a missing tooth, or numerous teeth.

A dental implant is a surgical fixture. It is placed directly into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over the span of a month or so. The dental implant then acts as a replacement for the root of your missing tooth.

This “artificial tooth root” serves to hold a replacement tooth or bridge, known as an abutment. Having a dental implant fused into the jaw is the closest thing to mimicking a natural tooth, as it stands on its own without affecting the nearby teeth, providing great stability and durability.

Both technology and science have progressed to greatly improve the success of dental implant placement. For more information about our cosmetic dentistry in Farnham, click to download our free brochure and find out how we can improve your teeth and smile.
