Implant Dentistry


One of the best ways to replace missing teeth is dental implants. They generally look and feel better than other alternatives such as removable dentures and fixed bridges. In fact modern implants look and feel natural. Dental implants are root-like structures made of titanium, a material which the body easily accepts. They are surgically inserted into the jaw bone, and during the months that follow a strong and rigid bond gradually forms between the bone and implant. An interim denture is placed over the implant immediately after surgery and is worn for the duration of the healing time. Crowns or bridges are then joined to the stable implants via titanium abutments. Due to the extreme stability and careful colour matching of the crown, your new teeth will look and feel like real ones. Eating and chewing will be as natural and comfortable as with your original teeth. See how dental implants and dental bridge work.


Implants offer many advantages over dentures.
