Dental implants are used to replace a tooth or teeth. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of a tooth. After a suitable osseointegration period between the implant and the bone ( 1 -6 months) an implant crown together with an abutment is placed onto the implant screw, mimicking the appearance of a natural tooth. Unlike many other dental restorations, an implant is an independent unit and does not depend on any of your natural teeth for support. Implants are very predictable with a 95% success rate and a very good long term prognosis. They will improve both function and aesthetics restoring your confidence for life.
