Dental Implants

Are you experiencing pain due to missing teeth? Do you avoid smiling because of a broken tooth? Are you looking for a more secure option than a traditional denture or dental flipper? If you answered, “Yes” to any of these questions, dental implants may be the solution for you.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is anchored in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place. Implants are made from titanium alloys and bone-like ceramic materials that are biocompatible with body tissue. They act as an anchor to provide a solid base for artificial tooth replacement.

Made from durable material such as titanium, these artificial roots act as stable support for the crown, bridge or denture that is attached to it.  Depending on the type of dental implant and the complexity of the procedure, they can be inserted into the upper or lower jawbone and/or gums using local anaesthetic only with typical outpatient procedures. s about dental procedures.

Benefits

In addition to restoring your smile and confidence, dental implants can also:

● Reduce pain
● Help to stabilize your teeth and prevent further tooth loss
● Let you enjoy your favourite foods again
● Improve your digestion through better chewing

Healing Process

● It takes 3-6 months for the jaw bone to fully form around the implant and heal
● Temporary crowns are put in place so that the patient can eat, speak and smile as normal while healing
● Next, an impression of the abutment will be taken to create the patient’s permanent alteration
● The impression will be placed permanently on the implant
● Like getting used to a new pair of glasses, the teeth and smile will feel natural in no time
