Whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth, dental implants offer a state-of-the-art, reliable solution to provide you a healthy, natural-looking smile.
What is a dental implant?
The best way to replace a tooth is to mimic it as closely as possible. Dental implants do just that.
A dental implant is a small post-like device made of titanium or titanium zirconium.
Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots. Once healed, dental implants act as a base to anchor the visible portion of the artificial tooth – ranging from individual crowns, multi-tooth bridges, or full-arch dental prostheses.
A dental implant is the only solution that replaces the missing tooth root, offering important benefits:
Feels and looks like a natural tooth
Helps prevent and minimize bone loss
Helps preserve surrounding, healthy teeth
Since every surgical procedure carries potential risks, you should always consult a dental professional to evaluate whether dental implants are the suitable option for you.
