Implant dentistry is the most advanced and clinically successful therapy available to replace a missing tooth or teeth
Dental implants are a safe, esthetic alternative to traditional flippers, bridgework, and full/ partial dentures. Annually over 500,000 dental implants are placed by general and dental specialists and their success rates normally range between 90 to 100%. Because implant restorations look and feel more like natural teeth, they offer new levels of comfort, security and confidence over traditional treatments.
A dental implant is a small “anchor” made of titanium that is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After osseointegration (when the surrounding bone has healed to the implant), a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant. This new tooth looks, feels and performs similar to your natural teeth.
