What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth that are screwed into your jaw; permanent teeth that do the job of your lost teeth. If you’ve lost a tooth, we recommend dental implants procedure to avoid bone loss that does occur over time. Not only does it change the aesthetics of your face it can also create oral health issues.

The insert stimulates new bone growth, retaining your jaw structure and maintaining facial aesthetics. Because dental implants are connected with the surrounding bone in your jaw, they have long-term potential and with proper care can last a lifetime.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

These man-made ‘tooth roots’ are surgically implanted into the jawbone, and once in place, the ‘roots’ can then be used to attach new teeth. Titanium dental implants are crafted from this lightweight metal, which is a strong and safe, and most importantly, it is accepted by the body.

Anyone healthy enough to undergo routine dental extractions or oral surgery can be considered for dental implants. Patients suffering from uncontrolled chronic diseases, systemic problems or behaviours and heavy smokers may not be good candidates.

Same day dental implant procedures are brief and take place in a single visit. A healing period of between three and six months is then required, during which time the bonding takes place. During this time most patients use a temporary bridge.
