Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth. The implants themselves are artificial tooth roots anchored in the gum or jawbone, on which replacement teeth are permanently secured. Since implanted teeth are fixed in the mouth rather than being removable like dentures, they allow a return to the comfort & function of natural teeth. Increased chewing ability means you can enjoy more nutritious foods, contributing to your overall health & well-being. In short, dental implants improve the quality of your life. They can improve your appearance, boost your self-confidence & allow you to speak with greater clarity.
How It Works
Dental implant can be thought of as artificial tooth roots, similar to a screw. When the dental implant is placed on your jawbone, it will bond with your natural bone. This is the sturdy base for supporting artificial teeth, called crowns.
The connector – known as an abutment – is affixed on top of the dental implant to support your crowns. Crowns are custom-made to match your teeth and fit your mouth.
Modern dental implants have a long and well-established history of success over more than 30 years. They are the strongest and most durable devices available to support your replacement teeth – and best of all, they allow your teeth to feel, look, and function absolutely naturally.
