Dental Implants

A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial replacement tooth for missing tooth/teeth. With advancements in technology, dental implants have now become a viable option to replace a missing single tooth, a few or even all of your teeth.

Being biocompatible, the dental implant is inserted into a missing tooth site where it is fixated as bone grows around it in a process called ‘osseointegration’. Once this is confirmed, we can then proceed onto constructing an artificial tooth or crown to place over the implant.

Replacing a missing tooth can be advantageous as it can:

  • Improve your ability to chew
  • Stabilize your bite or occlusion
  • Prevent adjacent or opposing teeth to drift or super-erupt
  • Create a more aesthetic smile
  • Replace the need for a removable denture
