Dental Implant

A dental implant is a piece of titanium or other materials that looks like a screw. It is put into the jaw where the missing tooth’s roots were. Over time, bone grows around the implant, which helps to hold it in place.

An artificial tooth, or crown, is then attached to the metal to fill in the gap left by the missing tooth. The crown is specially made to look like the other teeth in size, shape and colour.

 A Dental Implant can be used to replace:

- Single tooth- One implant will be placed, a crown will then be fixed on top of the implant.

  • - Several teeth- Either several implants and crowns will be placed or a dental bridge will be fitted onto the implants.

- All the teeth- A number of implants are placed, then either a fixed bridge will be fitted onto the implants or the implants will be used to stably hold a removable denture.

Dental implants can also be used to hold a dental bridge or dentures in place.
