Dental implants offer a reliable and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, providing numerous benefits compared to bridges.

Not only are they less invasive, preserving the neighboring teeth, but they also enhance aesthetics, resulting in a more natural and appealing smile. Moreover, dental implants restore proper function and chewing ability, giving you the confidence to bite harder and enjoy your favorite foods without any concerns.

Dental implants consist of two main components: the implant fixture, which is a titanium anchor that replaces the tooth root, and the dental implant crown, which replaces the clinical tooth crown, or visible portion of the tooth.

The dental implant fixturesis surgically inserted into the jawbone, creating a stable foundation for the replacement tooth. This is followed by a 3-4 month healing period, during which the bone surface grows to and fuses with the titanium implant fixture, ensuring a strong integration.

Once integration is successful, an impression is taken to record the precise position and alignment of the implant. This can be a conventional silicone impression or a digital scan of the implant. This impression is then sent to the ental laboratory to create a bespoke implant crown. The definitive crown is securely attached to the titanium anchor, restoring the defcit created by the missing tooth.

By effectively addressing both aesthetic and functional aspects, dental implants provide a lasting and comprehensive solution for missing teeth. They are the optimal solution as they do not affect the adjacent teeth.
