“Many patients that chose partial or full dentures eventually realise that dental implants are the superior option for their health and dental hygiene. We're happy to offer this option to our patients as a way to regain the smile they had in their 20s or 30s.”
— Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd
Over the years, most of us take for granted how natural teeth perform. We seldom stop to appreciate how easily we bite or chew. Dental Implants have helped hundreds of thousands of people regain the function and appearance they once took for granted.
Age is not typically a major factor; successful dental implants have been performed on young people as well as the elderly. Visit us for an initial consult and we will recommend the best solution for you. In general, we look for a patient that is in optimal health, has healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density to support the dental implant.
As dental implants function remarkably like natural teeth, most people who have them experience a renewed sense of comfort in their appearance and of course renewed function.
Due to the fact that the replacement teeth are anchored securely to your jawbone they cannot slip and slide like unsecured dentures can. When dentures are not secure enough they often cause sores in the mouth. With proper oral hygiene and care, dental implants have been shown to last for many years.
Dr Meng Quah Shepherd will evaluate the health of your smile and make a recommendation based on what is suitable for you. To get in touch with our team please contact us below.
