Implants can offer a permanent solution to missing teeth, essentially mimicking your natural tooth root and providing a fully functional replacement for your missing teeth.
A dental implant acts as a replacement for a natural tooth root. Implants are made of titanium and are fitted in bone where the tooth root would normally be. When fully integrated to the bone, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant and a crown, bridge or denture is then placed over the abutment to replace the missing tooth or teeth. Implants are alternatives to complex restorative treatment on your natural tooth such as conventional bridges or dentures. The best dental implants are safe, non-toxic, and biocompatible. Your bone will grow around the implant, known as osseointegration, to anchor the implant within your jaw. First used over 30 years ago, dental implants have evolved to provide a treatment option with a 95% success rate of over 10 years. Implants are now considered the number one option to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
