When are they needed?
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or for some other reason.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into a jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. They are a small screw made of titanium, a metal that the body easily accepts. They have been scientifically tested and documented for over 30 years and have a long-term success rate of over 95%.
Dental implants are the closest possible replacement to natural teeth and provide a stable foundation for eating and smiling with confidence. They remove the need to compromise healthy teeth for a bridge and help to preserve the jawbone, and can eliminate the pain caused by ill-fitting dentures.
The implant forms a strong bond with the jaw bone, providing a stable foundation for crowns, bridges or dentures. In most cases the implant is firmly anchored to the bone after just six weeks.
