Dental implants

What are dental implants

Dental implants act as false roots that are fixed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are often made of titanium metal and are biocompatible (non-toxic). They integrate seamlessly into the jaw bone providing a strong foundation for a crown, bridge or denture.

What does the procedure involve

Dental implants are fitted across two surgical procedures. In the first procedure, the dental implant is placed into the jawbone and following surgery. It is given between three to six months to osseointegrate (form a strong bond with the bone), before the second procedure takes place. During this time, a temporary denture may be worn and a diet of soft foods is recommended.

In the second procedure, the oral surgeon fixes an abutment to the top of the implant, through the gums. An abutment connects the implant with the new crown, bridge or denture to be attached.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth and help to provide a number of benefits, including:

  • A natural appearance;
  • Durability;
  • Improved speech;
  • Improved comfort;
  • Protected jawbone.
