What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal posts that replace the root of your tooth. These can be covered with natural-looking, discreet and long-lasting artificial teeth. Made of titanium, the implant fuses with your jawbone to create a strong and durable base that helps you regain your natural function and feel more confident.
They’re an excellent option if you:
- Are missing one or multiple teeth
- Have healthy oral tissues
- Want to boost your confidence and improve your speech
- Can’t or don’t want to wear dentures
- Don’t smoke
- Can commit several months to the process
How are dental implants done?
Dental implants are carried out in stages with healing time between each. You will first undergo a thorough evaluation to prepare for the procedure. Then any damaged teeth will be removed to prepare for your implants. Next, the titanium implant will be inserted into your jaw, and you will be given time for this to heal. Finally, your new, beautiful permanent tooth or teeth will be fitted.
