Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jawbone to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It consists of a screw (usually made of titanium) that is inserted into the jawbone and serves as a base for a crown or bridge.

The implant is placed under local anesthesia, and it usually takes three months for the implant to fully anchor into the jawbone. After the implant has fully healed, the final restoration (crown or bridge) is made and attached. Dental implants are a popular and successful method of restoring missing teeth and can help restore the natural appearance and function of the dentition. The restored tooth looks, feels and functions like any other tooth, allowing you to speak, eat and smile without restrictions.

Unlike bridges, which can affect neighboring teeth, implants do not affect natural teeth. However, it is important to note that good oral hygiene and regular checkups are required to ensure the longevity of the implant.
