Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth root that is used to support a single tooth or a group of teeth. The titainium implant is shaped like a screw and surgically placed into the jawbone to secure a replacement tooth, a dental bridge, or implant-retained dentures.

A dental implant may be the best tooth replacement available. Dental implants are made from surgical grade hypo-allergenic titanium and anchored surgically into the jawbone. In a process known as "osseointegration", the jawbone will fuse with the implant making it an extremely strong tooth root replacement.

Advantages of Dental Implants

When a tooth's root is diseased or has been damaged beyond repair and the jaw can no longer support the tooth, the best replacement may be a single-tooth implant consisting of an artificial dental crown that is connected to the implant with a post or abutment.

Implants are the restoration of choice for replacing missing teeth. Fixed and removable implant-retained dentures also immediately available as teeth in a day / all on 4 implant-retained dentures provide patients with superior denture retention and function.

Dental Implants have none of the negatives associated with bridgework or conventional dentures. Dental implant(s) can fully restore the biting and chewing force as natural teeth.

Dental Implant Placement Procedure Time Frame

There are a few methods of placing dental implants. Procedure method is based on the patient's age, supporting jawbone structure, dental health and the patient's unique situation. The placement procedure and the healing time vary from person to person. Depending on the patient’s condition, a temporary immediate functioning tooth can be placed after surgery.

Dental Implant Placement Methods

The feasibility of dental implant placement requires conventional X-rays to evaluate manually placed implant locations.
