Dental implants may be an option for people that have lost a tooth or teeth. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or a complete set of teeth, implants look, feel and function like natural teeth.
They are a reliable option that can restore original function and comfort and achieve excellent aesthetics.
Dental implants are an artificial tooth root fabricated from a very strong biocompatible material (made of titanium), which are surgically placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing.
Through a process called “osseointergration” the jawbone actually attaches itself to the implant over time, providing stability. This process takes between three to six months.
Once osteointegration has occurred, smaller posts called abutments are screwed into the implant and then the crown or denture are securely attached to the abutment.
Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and with combination of good daily oral hygiene and regular checkups (every 6 months) the implants success rate will be high.
