A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth, in the form of a custom dental crown, dental bridge or denture, which is permanently secured in the jaw with a tiny, titanium post. The post acts like a tooth root, stimulating healthy bone growth to avoid jaw shrinkage which often occurs after tooth loss. A dental implant functions like a natural tooth, enabling patients to enjoy normal speech and a healthy diet without restrictions. With proper dental care and good oral hygiene, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are the most natural-looking and innovative solution for replacing missing teeth. The dental implant procedure has significantly improved and now holds about a 98% success rate. With proper care and routine dental visits, your dental implants can last forever.
Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or to secure a denture when an entire arch of teeth have been lost or removed. They provide a permanent, secure and completely functional solution that will also support healthy bone growth in the jaw to maintain your natural appearance and profile.
