A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is used in the replacement of missing teeth. The root of the high-tech implant is made of titanium and inserted into the jawbone. A crown is then made to fit onto the implant.
The procedure can be used to replace single and multiple teeth and will look virtually identical to your original teeth. Implants are as firm as your original set and feel like they are a part of you, allowing you to smile with confidence whilst enjoying eating food again.

What are the Benefits?
With treatments provided by Mr Nawaz, Selby Dental Care can help improve your smile with the use of dental implants. Apart from looking and feeling completely natural, implants have shown a success rate of over 97% within 15 years – unbeaten by any other treatment, and resulting in implants being the best option to replace missing teeth.
The conventional method of using a bridge requires the grinding down of healthy teeth in order to support the fitted bridge; this can reduce the life expectancy of these teeth and cause them to have a heavier load. An implant only requires to be attached to the jawbone, which gives a more correct load, shape, and a feel that is the same as your natural teeth.
The Implant Process
At your first appointment Mr Nawaz will carry out a full detailed examination and discuss any dental problems you may have and what options are available to you.
When it comes to fitting, dental implants are gently placed under local anaesthetic into the ideal position.
A false tooth is then placed over the implant while it heals over the next 3-6 months.
Once fully integrated into the bone, the final crown, bridge or denture can be made to provide a perfect fit and result.
