Dental Implant treatment is one of three methods available to replace missing teeth. It is a proven long term solution for functionality; significantly improving the patient’s chewing capacity, dental hygiene and speech. Implants are durable, yet look and feel like your own teeth.
Dental Implants act as artificial roots that are securely anchored in the jaw. They are made of medical grade titanium and are placed in the site of a missing tooth or teeth, where they biologically bond with the bone (osseointegrate). When there is stability of the implant in the bone a dental prosthesis such as a ceramic crown is added, to give the appearance and function of a natural tooth. Dental implants can also be used to support bridges or dentures when there are more than one tooth missing.

Teeth as strong as your own
What is this treatment?
A dental implant is a titanium “root” that is placed into the jaw bone to support a crown to form an artificial tooth. Titanium is a biocompatible material and does not cause allergic reactions. The implant is usually inserted into the jaw bone under a local anaesthetic, and the bone grows onto the implant and integrates with the surface.
Is this treatment for me?
It does not matter whether teeth were lost through accident, disease or caries; dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement alternative for many patients.
When the natural roots of teeth are lost, bone resorption in the jaws may occur. These problems can be avoided by inserting dental implants.
- The benefits of this treatment are –
Implant supported teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.
- Dental implants make you feel comfortable – you can eat whatever you want; your teeth are strong and stable. You know that you have chosen the best solution and can smile a confident and beaming smile.
- Implants provide an efficient long-term solution – when you maintain good oral hygiene, your implants can last your whole life. This makes implants an efficient and economic long term solution.
- Dental implants support your health – when you lose a tooth, the jaw bone and gum will resorb, and increasingly so if you lose several teeth. Dental implants protect healthy teeth, protect from bone loss and help you keep your natural look.
