Dental Implants

Dental Implants
Dental implants are used for replacing missing teeth. Implants are more durable and longer lasting than bridges or partial dentures because they replace both the tooth and the root. A dental implant consists of the implant that is inserted in the jawbone, an abutment, and a porcelain crown. 
 
Benefits:
  • Implants restore proper chewing function and so you can enjoy foods previously too "difficult" to eat.
  • You regain the closest thing to the look, feel and function of your natural teeth
  • You can clean and floss normally
  • No fear of caries & sensitivity of teeth No more irritated and painful gums
  • Prevent the shrinking of bone and gums
  • You feel confident that your replacement teeth won’t move or loosen when eating or speaking
  • Last the longest of all the options available for replacing teeth
  • Cutting of natural teeth is avoided

You are a good candidate if you have good oral health, are generally healthy, have enough bone and you do not smoke (since smoking increases implant rejection and slows the healing process) 

Before placing an implant, it is important that your dentist has done the proper planning required with the final restoration in mind. We make use of a 3D cone beam scan to evaluate the quality and availability of bone to ensure ideal placement of the implant. This enable us to place a quality restoration .
