What are Dental Implants?
These are a popular dental treatment used to replace missing teeth and restore a natural, beautiful smile. Unlike other tooth replacement options such as bridges and dentures, are a long-lasting and elegant alternative. Designed to look, feel and function just like natural teeth, and are a popular choice for patients seeking a permanent solution to their tooth loss.
Made up of two main components: the implant and the abutment. Once the implant is secured in the jawbone, it fuses with the bone over time in a process called osseointegration. This creates a stable and durable foundation for the replacement tooth that can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
If you are considering dental implants, it is important to have good general health, healthy gums, and sufficient bone in your jaw to support the implant.
