Dental implants are strong, permanent and realistic replacements for one or more missing teeth.
They are small titanium posts which are gently placed into your jawbone and which bond with the bone over time to provide what is, in essence, a false tooth root.
The implant is then crowned, giving a long-lasting, natural, new "tooth".
Implants can also be used to hold dentures firmly in place, so you can eat and speak with confidence.
At Market Place Dental Practice in Banbury, we refer patients who require dental implants to a specialist so they can achieve the best possible results.
