Over half The world is missing one or more teeth…
Talk to your dentist today about how dental implants can restore the confidence in your smile!
Implants, the best way to replace missing teeth & restore your smile
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed in the jaw to act as a fixed and permanent root. During the healing process this screw integrates with the surrounding bone (through a process known as osseointegration) to create a strong and lasting foundation that can then be used to support a dental crown, multiple bridge, or fixed denture.
Based on scientific evidence over the past 30 years, dental implants have become the first treatment option for tooth loss. Plus, the development of new regeneration materials and exciting advances in digital technology mean that dental implants can now be used for any patient with any condition.
What is an implant?
the best way to replace missing teeth & restore your smile
Perform like natural teeth
As implants perform just like natural teeth, you can bite and chew comfortably without the discomfort of conventional dentures.
Implants also help to protect your adjacent natural teeth, prevent gum damage and loss, and keep your jaw healthy.
After local anesthesia, the dental implant is placed in the area of the missing tooth.
The healing period after placement ranges from 2 weeks to several months according to the condition of the patient.
An abutment & temporary crown can be placed on the implant at the time of surgery.
If the diagnosis is insufficient bone to place an implant, for example when the tooth has been missing for a long time and the jaw bone has receded, an implant can be placed after a special procedure of bone grafting.
The abutment is the connecting element between the crown and the implant.
The abutment is connected to the implant during or after the healing period, depending on the stability of the implant that gradually integrates with the surrounding bone to create a strong and lasting foundation.
Final crown restoration
The dental laboratory uses an impression of the implant site to make a crown that matches the esthetics of your natural teeth.
Average implant treatment times
Upper jaw: 4 months
Lower jaw: 3 months
Bone graft: additional 2 - 6 months
