Dental Implants

Our implant dentists are very experienced, and members of the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI).

Dental implants are the ideal solution for lost teeth or ill-fitting dentures. They look, feel and function just like your natural teeth, enabling you to speak clearly, eat with enjoyment and smile with confidence.

Dental implants offer a permanent replacement of teeth. Made from titanium, which is well tolerated by body, implants act as artificial roots inserted into the jawbone to. Once integrated, they provide a strong anchor onto which crowns, bridges or dentures can be attached making them ideal for replacing missing teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • They feel and function just like your natural teeth
  • Can improve facial appearance and enable you to speak clearly.
  • Increased confidence to smile and eat with enjoyment

Why dental implants instead of bridges or dentures?

Dentures or bridges can also be used to replace missing teeth. But some patients find dentures uncomfortable and inconvenient because they are removable. Bridges are a fixed option but may require modifying healthy teeth to accommodate the missing tooth.

How long do dental implants last?

By maintaining oral health including regular check-ups, dental implants can potentially last a lifetime. Like natural teeth, attention needs to be paid to gums around implant, because they are susceptible to the same diseases that can affect natural teeth. The crowns used for dental implants have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years due to normal wear and tear.
