What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are basically replacement tooth roots, made up of titanium that interface with the bone of the jaw or the skull and supports a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge, denture and facial prosthesis. Sometimes, they act as an orthodontic anchor. The primary purpose of dental implant is to bond with the jaw and provide a secure, long-term solution to restore your chewing ability, improve the appearance of your smile and prevent bone loss in the jaw and mouth. Modern dental implants work through a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration is when healthy bones form a direct interface with a dental implant, ensuring an incredibly strong and long-term connection. This creates the perfect platform for replacement teeth, dentures or other prosthesis.


Do I Need a Dental Implant?

You may need to consider a dental implant, if you have:


  • A missing, infected, cracked or damaged tooth
  • Missing, infected, cracked or damaged teeth
  • An injury from an accident involving your teeth or facial structure
  • Sporting injuries involving teeth or facial structure
  • Permanent or temporary denture problems

If any of these things sound like you and you think you may need to consider a dental implant, feel free to contact the clinic today and we will talk you through your options.
