Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. Implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups. A single tooth or a full arch of teeth which have been lost due to injury or disease can be replaced with dental implants. Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissues. Reasons you may want to consider dental implants:

  • To replace one or more teeth
  • To provide support for a partial denture
  • To increase the support and stability of full upper or lower denture
  • To enhance chewing comfort
  • To increase confidence while smiling, talking and eating
  • To improve your overall psychological health
  • To improve aesthetic appearance and regain overall confidence
