Implants have become the treatment of choice to replace missing teeth for many years. The cosmetic and functional results are just as good as natural teeth and can last for many years. They are changing the way people live.
A dental implant is a small threaded titanium post. It is surgically placed into the jaw to replace missing teeth. This ‘post’ which takes 2-4 months to integrate with the bone provides support for individual crowns, bridges or loose dentures.
In addition to the obvious replacement of missing teeth, implants can help preserve your facial structure, preventing bone deterioration and muscle sagging which occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like your own natural teeth.
Dental implant treatment is often the ideal option to replace missing natural teeth, either a single, many teeth or all teeth to replace a complete denture. The strength and stability of dental implants allow you to enjoy most foods you want and give you back the look and feel of your natural teeth.
