Dental Implants

Are they an option for you ?

Lifetime Solution to your Missing Teeth

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option where titanium screws (cylinders) are surgically placed into the jawbone in the region of missing teeth. Once in place, they get integrated to the jawbone, allowing your dentist to mount the replacement teeth onto them. Your new tooth, a crown, will look and feel similar to your real teeth. Dental implant surgery offers a great alternative to dentures or bridgework that do not fit well and can offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots does not allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.

 

To receive implants, you need to have:

  • Healthy gums and oral tissues.
  • Sufficient bone in the jaw to support the implant.
  • Good maintenance of oral hygiene & regular dental visits to ensure the long-term success and health of the dental implants.
