Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an option to replace missing teeth. There is a bottom part made of metal that is placed in bone, and a top part in the mouth which looks like a tooth. With implants, patients can eat well and smile with confidence!

When to get Dental Implants?

Dental implant is a recommended tooth replacement option by dentists. Especially for those who dislike using dentures or don’t want bridges, implants are a good option to consider for a more natural feeling when it comes to eating or speaking. When eating or speaking becomes unbearable without the missing teeth then it is time to get dental implants.


Firstly, a CT scan (3-dimensional x-ray) will be taken to assess the bone at the area where the implant is planned. In some cases, bone grafting (addition of bone) may be required before the implant procedure takes place to provide adequate support for the titanium implant. Next, the implant is placed into the jawbone, and then left to heal for two to three months. Finally, the crown is placed on top of the implant.

Benefits of Dental Implants 

  1. Forget about unsightly partial denture clasps or hooks that contribute to bad breath and place damaging pressure on remaining natural teeth.
  2. Eliminate irritation and inflammation to the gums, unlike dentures.
  3. Improve your speech by removing or reducing the fullness of full or partial dentures.
  4. Replace missing teeth with the look and feel of natural teeth without having to trim adjacent healthy teeth.
  5. Tooth implants help stop progressive bone loss and shrinkage of the jaw bone by creating a surface for the bone to be attached to.
  6. Dental implants are clinically proven with success rates of 90 %.
