WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
A dental implant is a post, usually made of titanium alloy, that is anchored in the jawbone. A dental implant acts as an anchoring point for a permanent dental device, such as a crown or dentures.
Some of the most common uses of a dental implant include:
- Single tooth replacement | With a single tooth replacement, a dental crown is attached to the dental implant. This effectively creates a new “tooth” that fills in the gap left by a lost tooth.
- Multiple tooth replacement | In the form of a permanent dental bridge supported by dental implants, this technology can be used to successfully replace multiple missing teeth.
- Implant supported dentures | Using dental implants as the foundation for an implant-supported denture, our team can permanently replace missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are a fantastic solution for people missing many or all teeth.
