A dental implant is a small titanium rod that’s surgically inserted into the socket of a missing tooth.
The implant fuses with jaw bone and becomes an artificial tooth root. A crown or other dental prosthetic is then placed on top of the implant.
Besides supporting synthetic teeth, implants strengthen the jaw to preserve facial structure by avoiding issues such as a sunken appearance – a common issue with conventional dentures.
Dental implants provide an advanced, versatile solution to tooth loss, and they look, feel and work like real teeth.
The diverse uses of implants – and their benefits compared with conventional tooth replacement systems – has made them the treatment of choice for many people with missing teeth.
Implants can replace:
Dental implants have become a popular alternative to older methods of replacing missing teeth.
They have the highest success rate of all surgical implants, and can be used as an alternative to bridges and dentures or in conjunction with them.
Implants are considered the most innovative way to replace teeth because they’re unique in stimulating jaw bone growth and can last a lifetime.
Other benefits of dental implants include:
If your general health is good and your jaw is fully developed, you’re likely to be a good candidate for dental implants.
You should also be prepared to commit to a high standard of oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing are essential, and so are regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning.
We can carry out a thorough evaluation of your mouth and jaw to help you decide whether dental implants are right for you.
We’ll also review your medical history and your current state of health, which determines how well implants will fuse to bone and how efficiently your mouth will heal.
