Dental ImplantsAn Overview
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are used to counter tooth loss. Dental implants are installed for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Implants can be categorized as prosthetic dentistry. In many cases, implants are needed to restore the necessary function of your teeth and supporting structures.
Dental implants are the most natural way to replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone, replacing missing tooth root structures. The implant, made of dental grade titanium, fuses with the jaw bone creating a stable and secure bond. The implant is then fitted with a custom designed restoration resulting in a natural-looking prosthetic tooth.
Dental implants have a 95% success rate.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or to secure a full denture. Implants have become the standard in tooth replacement for their extensive oral health and wellness benefits. Dental implants help to prevent secondary health conditions often associated with missing teeth. They allow for the enjoyment of a normal, varied diet and confident speech in social and professional settings.
