What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a small metal screw made of titanium that we surgically place in your jawbone to replace missing teeth. A custom dental crown sits atop your dental implant to complete your smile. A dental implant has many aesthetic and health advantages over other tooth-replacement options.
Implants can fool almost everyone – When you smile, your dental implant will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth so that no one knows you have one. Of course, will check at each of your exams to ensure it is still functioning properly and that your gums surrounding the area are healthy.
Dental implant crowns look like your natural teeth – We use high-quality materials to create your dental implant crown and match it to your tooth colour. It will complement, instead of take away from, your smile.
Bone retention – Because a dental implant is rooted in your bone and made of biocompatible metal, it will naturally fuse with your existing bone to create stability. Dental implants can stand alone, be part of a fixed bridge, or can secure dentures for added security.
