A Dental Implant is a specially designed screw made of biologically compatible material, that is placed into the upper and/or lower jawbone to replace a missing tooth. Implants are the closest you can get to natural teeth. They can be used to replace an individual tooth, multiple teeth, or the whole upper and/or lower arch.
Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone. They allow you to keep your teeth where they belong and prevent adjacent teeth from being compromised, destroyed or damaged.
Dental implants improve vital processes such as eating, chewing, smiling and talking, giving you multiple functional and psychological benefits.
Dental Implants are made of Titanium, a strong lightweight biomaterial with the capacity to osseintegrate. Osseintegration is a process in which the job bone grows around the implant and hold it in place. The implant fuses with your natural bone an creates a strong and long-lasting foundation. It may be several months before the implant is completely integrated into the bone.
