Dental Implants

Dental implants are changing the way our patients live. Whether you have lost a tooth due to decay, injury, or other dental issues, implants provide a permanent and natural-looking solution to restore your smile and improve your oral function.

The Anatomy of a Dental Implant

There are three parts that make up a dental implant:

  • The fixture: The titanium screw that’s surgically placed into the patient’s jawbone to replace the original tooth root
  • The abutment: The small connector piece that attaches to the implant, ensuring a solid foundation for the crown
  • The crown: The visible part of the dental implant, which is custom-designed to match your natural teeth

Collectively, these components work together to create a prosthesis that closely replicates the function and appearance of a natural tooth. The implant fixture provides stability and support by integrating with the jawbone, while the abutment and crown restore the visible portion of the tooth, allowing for proper aesthetics, biting, and chewing functionality.

What to Expect During Treatment

The surgical placement of the implant fixture is performed under local anesthesia, where the fixture is inserted into the bone. Over the next twelve weeks, osseointegration occurs, allowing the implant to integrate (grow) into the bone.

Following osseointegration and gum healing, a digital scan or impression is completed to create models for making your permanent tooth replacement. Follow-ups on your implant will be carried out at your regular prophylaxis (cleaning) visits.

Reasons We May Recommend Implants

Besides missing teeth, we may recommend dental implants as a treatment option for the following scenarios

  • Improved function
  • Preservation of jawbone health
  • Enhanced aesthetics
  • Stability and durability
  • Adjacent tooth preservation
  • Restoration of bite alignment
  • Improved speech
