Dental implants provide patients with a quality alternative to dentures or other forms of artificial teeth. Dental implants are very small appliances that can be inserted into the upper and lower jaws in order to replace lost or missing teeth. They can also be used to support a bridge or other structural device within the mouth. Dental implants can not only help to restore the natural function of the teeth, they can also significantly alter the aesthetical value of the entire face.

Dental implants offer significant advantages over traditional dentures. For starters, dentures are often loose or ill fitting, which can make them uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time. On the other hand, dental implants will fit better in the mouth and can provide support for bridges and crowns in the process. More advantages of dental implants include a reduction in the movement of crowns, bridges and false teeth, proper chewing, better alignment of the teeth and stability for fixed bridge work. Dental implants also feel better for the patient, and because they are more realistic and functional, they can offer improved speech and self-confidence.

To accompany their restored teeth, many patients opt to have dermal filler treatment to plump up their lips and improve the overall appearance of their smile. This safe and simple treatment involves injectable filler that is administered into the target area. The effects are immediate and can last up to 12 months, depending on the area of skin that is treated. Follow up treatments will be required to maintain the desired filled out look. Filler treatment gives the skin a more youthful appearance and consists of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body but is lost over time due to ageing.
