Dental Implants in Wandsworth
Dental Implants are just one of the ways of replacing lost or missing teeth. Dental Implants are most often titanium screws which are inserted into your jaw bone. Crowns, bridges or dentures are then placed on top of the implants to restore cosmetics and function. The implants systems that we use at the practice are Xive and Astra. The dentists who place our dental implants are Dr Steve Bassi and Dr Yvonna Szyszko. They are both specialists in their fields and dentists from all over London refer to them.
Dental Implants are not the only option and there are various designs of bridges and dentures which can be made to replace your missing teeth.
