What are dental implants?

Dental Implants provide a great alternative to dentures to replace missing teeth. With lots of advancements made in the field of dental restoration. Implants are becoming an increasingly effective and reliable solution for missing teeth.


Dental Implants are exactly what the name suggests. Dental implants replace the root of the tooth with a screw-like post often made from metal such as titanium. The artificial tooth is made from Porcelain, metal or a combination of the two. Dental implants look and function the same as natural teeth and with proper oral hygiene dental implants can last a lifetime.

Why get an implant?

Dental implants are often useful if you have missing teeth you would like to replace and have the following:

  • Healthy oral tissue and jawbone
  • Are unable or do not want to wear dentures
  • Have no prior medical conditions that will prevent the healing of your jaw and bone

Benefits of Dental Implants
