DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth.

The implants themselves are small titanium threaded cylinders, which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts (abutments) are then attached to the implant, the abutment is the part of the device that protrude through the gums. These abutments are the stable platform for artificial replacement teeth to be placed on.

Implants help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs following loss of teeth.
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, our surgeons are able to significantly reduce the time required for Dental Implant Therapy.
