Imagine having the feeling of natural teeth again
Dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place. With the exception of your natural tooth, when done correctly, nothing looks more natural than a Dental implant.
A Dental implant involves a surgical grade titanium screw that is placed into the jawbone. The matrial used has a unique ability to fuse directly into the bone through a process known as "osseo-integration." Via this process the bone cells attach themselves directly to the titanium surface, essentially locking the implant into the jaw bone. After this a carefully chosen custom-made crown is placed on the implant to restore the natural look of the tooth.
There are several reasons why Dental implants are preferred over other options. For example, Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth; they prevent bone and gum tissue loss that can happen with regular bridges; they preserve the jawbone preventing premature aging and "sunken-in" look; they preserve and restore chewing, smiling and speech functions better.
