Benefits of Dental Implants

  • The implant will fuse with the existing bone.
  • The new implant will support your teeth firmly and safely.
  • Your new implants are aesthetically pleasing.
  • You will no longer have pain during talking or eating.
  • The dental implant will prevent progressive bone atrophy.




Dental implants represent a remarkable breakthrough in the field of restorative dentistry. They have revolutionized the way we approach the replacement of missing teeth, offering a solution that closely mimics the form, function, and appearance of natural teeth.



Dental implants consist of three essential components: the implant itself, which is a small, biocompatible titanium post surgically placed into the jawbone; the abutment, which connects the implant to the crown; and the crown, the visible part of the implant that resembles a natural tooth. This three-part structure allows implants to provide a level of stability and durability that is unparalleled by other tooth replacement options.





One of the key advantages of dental implants is their ability to replace missing teeth without affecting adjacent healthy teeth. Traditional options like dental bridges require the alteration of neighboring teeth to support the bridge, which can compromise their long-term health. In contrast, dental implants stand independently, preserving the integrity of surrounding teeth.

Moreover, dental implants stimulate the jawbone just like natural tooth roots. This stimulation helps prevent bone loss, which can occur when a tooth is lost and its root is no longer present.

By preserving the bone structure, dental implants contribute to maintaining the facial contours and preventing the sunken appearance that can result from significant bone resorption.

Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or need a full arch of teeth replaced, dental implants offer versatile solutions. They provide a secure foundation for crowns, bridges, or even dentures, ensuring that your smile looks, feels, and functions naturally.


Course of Treatment

Dental Implant Procedure
Dental Implant Procedure
A dental implant is a titanium fixture that is placed into the bone under gums of the mouth. After the implant body is placed the implant will be left untreated for a period of 4-6 months. During this time, the bone will grow around the implant in a process called osseointegration

The next step in the process is to attach an abutment to the tooth. This is achieved by exposing the top of the implant and placing the abutment. This is the part of the implant that will support the final crown.

Finally, an impression is taken of the implant and a final restoration is crafted. This restoration will be comfortable and cosmetically pleasing. Your completed implant will be fully functional, allowing you to resume normal activities.
