Dental implants are root like structure that are usually made of titanium. Dental implants are placed into jaw bone to replace missing roots through a small surgery and are then allowed to heal for a period of time to allow the implants to fuse with the bone. The dental implants will then be able to provide a strong foundation to crowns, bridges and dentures. Dental implants have excellent long- term success and provide advanced solution to replace missing teeth than the conventional removable denture or bridge.

Pre-prosthetic procedures, such as sinus lifts or gingival grafts, are sometimes required to recreate ideal bone and gingiva.

The dental implants therapies have various benefits:

  • It is an advanced solution in replacing missing teeth that most closely mimics natural teeth
  • Replaces one or more teeth without damaging the neighbouring natural teeth
  • Minimises bone loss
  • Improves overall self-image, speech and chewing capacity
  • Improves retention of dentures in the mouth
  • Long lasting solution
