Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and provide an alternative treatment option to a bridge. Dental implants are metal posts made from titanium that are surgically placed beneath your gums. Because implants fuse to the jawbone, they offer greater stability and comfort than conventional bridges or dentures.
It is important that meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits be maintained to insure the long-term success of the implant procedure. Certain chronic diseases like diabetes, osteoporosis, or chronic sinus problems can interfere with the healing process and prevent the implant from properly fusing to the bone.
The entire procedure can take four to six months to complete and typically involves more than one surgical appointment.
Our specialist will do a thorough evaluation to determine whether implants are right for you.
