IMPLANTS

Loss of natural teeth can dramatically alter your facial appearance and can lead to loss of self-esteem. Dental implants help you regain your natural smile and improving your appearance. Dental implants not only help eliminate loose fitting complete and partial dentures but also acts to stop the deterioration in the jawbone, which occurs when the natural teeth are lost.

Dental implants can replace missing teeth for people of all ages, young and old. Nearly everyone with healthy gums and adequate bone to support an implant is a candidate for dental implants. In cases of bone loss the surgeon will add bone and tissue before placing the Implant, or at the time of extraction.

Dental implants are titanium components that replace missing teeth in the upper and lower jaw. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone, under the gum to substitute the root of the tooth. After a few months and when the implant has integrated into the jawbone and is firm and stable, it can then be used to support an implant crown, implant fixed bridgework or implant supported dentures.

The success rate of implants are high and highly predictable. Implant supported reconstructions are an excellent option for tooth replacement. The dental technology in implant dentistry makes it possible to provide replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
