Dental Implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, a dental implant fuses with the bone and becomes a good anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used in solutions for replacing single or multiple missing teeth.

Would I benefit from a dental implant?

Many people who consider implants have removable, conventional dentures for lower and upper jaws, or have removable bridges. These people experience a significant improvement in their ability to chew food comfortably after their dental implant treatment.

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

Reasons to consider Dental Implants

  • Without the root structure of a natural tooth the jawbone can shrink making your face look older.
  • There are no loose parts. An implant is stable and comfortable.
  • Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
  • Dental Implants look and feel like natural teeth.
