What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for a lost tooth or teeth.
It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.
Dental implants can be used to replace as few as one missing tooth or with several implants the entire mouth.
Why choose dental implants?
Implants are the ultimate alternative to natural teeth. They are strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are a long-term solution, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
How long does the treatment plan take?
The whole treatment plan can take from 3 to 6 months from start to finish depending on what is required.
