Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a prosthesis where a titanium screw is fixated into the jaw bone like a natural tooth to support a crown or bridge. It is the best long-term option for missing dentition. 

Finding a replacement for a tooth that closely mimics the strength, function and appearance of a natural tooth was once a difficult task. In the past, bridges and dentures were the only options, with limited results. However, recently, dental implants have provided a superior option as a tooth replacement that functions identically to the root of a natural tooth. Implants have also been used to anchor other dental restorations like dentures and bridges for increased ease and function.

A small portion of the implant is sometimes visible above the gum line – the abutment – which is used as the site to attach a crown.
