Provides a permanent tooth replacement treatment.
Dental implants provide a permanent tooth replacement treatment with long term, durable results that restore full functionality in a natural looking, aesthetically pleasing way. Missing teeth may affect your speech and ability to chew. Dental implants are a modern form of tooth replacement technology.
It is usually made of titanium which is very strong and readily accepted by human tissues. The implant is inserted into the jaw and then left for around 3-4 months for the bone to integrate with the implant, creating a strong anchor for the replacement tooth. After the bone has integrated with the dental implant, the treatment is completed with a finely sculpted replacement tooth known as a crown that is screwed or cemented onto the implant by your dentist. The result is a very strong, durable and natural looking replacement tooth that functions and appears just like a real tooth.
