Implants

Implants are used to support a number of dental prostheses, crowns, dentures replacement teeth etc. Unlike other forms of dental prostheses, they are surgically placed into the jawbone giving a much more natural feel and look. The procedure is usually made up of three steps.

First, the dentist inserts a small man-made titanium device that serves in lieu of the root portion of a missing tooth. This procedure is relatively pain free requiring only local aesthetic.

The second step is done once the bone has healed tightly around the implant, which serves as the base for the replacement tooth. Next a post is placed on the implant to act as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Once the healing time is up on step two, the third and final step is done; the attachment of the replacement tooth.

Dental implants can be used to replace one or many lost teeth. Replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. This is a proven and effective option that lasts.

Dental Implants are an effective long-term solution for missing teeth and provide structural support to your face and mouth, as well as lasting just as long as bridges or dentures.
