Dental Implants


A Dental Implant is an artificial tooth root that replaces one or several missing teeth. The inner part looks like a screw and is made of a bio-friendly titanium alloy and the outer part is a prosthetic crown made to have the same appearance and texture as natural teeth. In time, the bone cells develop around the implant, reinforcing it into the jaw and fusing it with the surrounding bone. Finally a new, strong alternative to missing teeth to perfect and restore your smile.
Dental Implants - the perfect solution! It looks and feels like a natural tooth!
As opposed to bridgework (which consists of partial or complete dentures that used to be the treatment for missing teeth), dental implants do not need to damage adjacent healthy teeth to use then as support for a bridge. According to scientific studies, 85% of people who have had bridgework done or dentures feel that their dentures are uncomfortable and do not function well on a day-to-day basis.
Dental implants are placed in the jawbone on its own and do not rely on adjacent teeth for support, which allows the patient to exert more chewing pressure than dentures.
