DENTAL IMPLANTS ARE PERMANENT AND LONG-LASTING REPLACEMENT FOR MISSING TEETH. A DENTAL IMPLANT IS A FIXED SOLUTION FOR ONE OR MORE MISSING TEETH, AND CAN HELP RESTORE BOTH YOUR SMILE AND YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE.

An implant is made up of an artificial titanium root that is fixed to the jawbone, with a crown or bridge fitted on top. They can be made to look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants also safeguard your overall dental health.

Benefits of implants:

  • Look and feel just like natural teeth
  • Provide permanent stability
  • Won’t come loose or fall out.
  • Prevent ageing bone loss

Dental Implants

A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone. When dental work such as a crown, fixed bridge or a full set of dentures is added, one or more missing teeth can be replaced. A dental implant is fabricated from a very strong, bio-compatible material placed in a simple procedure that, generally, is as convenient as a tooth extraction. After an initial healing period, during which the implant is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial tooth. The implant material is extremely bio-compatible. The bone grows to the implant and bonds to it. This makes the implant very strong. The process is called ‘osseointegration’. A dental implant is essentially a new tooth’ inserted into a tooth gap. Offering a beautiful and natural look, implants are becoming increasingly popular for patients looking for a complete smile, and alternative to dentures. Whereas dentures can be uncomfortable, and easy to break and lose, dental implants offer greater durability and convenience for patients. If you are looking for a natural-looking and long-term solution to missing teeth, dental implants are the way to go. The dental implant procedure is done in two parts:

  • First, an artificial root made of titanium is inserted into the jaw and left for around three to four months for the bone to fuse with the new root. Titanium is used because of the extremely low body-rejection rates – titanium is a common metal for artificial implants
  • Then, a finely sculpted tooth (known as a crown) is then fitted to the implanted titanium root.
