Fix the root of the problem with dental implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace a missing tooth/teeth and also provides a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial cylinder used to replace the root of a tooth. An artificial tooth or crown is typically placed on top of the implant.

Implant supported dentures

A dental implant can also be used to support dentures, for example if you have dentures that do not fit you properly.

The process

Getting implants typically involves:

  • X-rays / molds are made of your jaw
  • Recommendation on best implant type/size
  • Dental surgery to fit the implant by periodontist (gum specialist)
  • Post surgery checkups to make sure everything is tracking well.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
