About Dental Implants

Dental implant treatment is a method of tooth replacement that look, feel and function like your natural teeth. The implant is a small metal screw, made of titanium, placed in the jaw where natural teeth are missing. It functions like a natural tooth root. Your bone will attach itself to the titanium and will not reject it.

Dental implants can be used to:

  • Replace a single missing tooth
  • Replace several missing teeth
  • Support a bridge when all teeth are missing
  • Provide secure support for a removable denture

The Procedure

The process starts with an assessment of the jawbone and missing teeth. X-rays of the jaw are required to determine suitability for implant surgery.

The implant is placed into the jawbone. A healing period is required before proceeding with the next step. Next, a titanium post is screwed into the implant. Replacement teeth are then connected to the implants, providing a strong natural looking replacement of your missing teeth.
