What Are Dental Implants?

What is a dental implant? Crown, abutment, and screw

Dental Implants Are Currently The Best Alternative To damaged Or Missing Natural Teeth.

They are proven to be much more durable and long lasting than any other restorative dental treatment available today.

Dental Implants are small screw like fixtures that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to form an artificial tooth root which anchors in place a new tooth crown.

A Dental Implant Consists Of 3 Parts

A tooth crown is anchored securely to an abutment, giving you the same functions as a natural tooth. We offer porcelain and zirconium crowns.

An abutment (which we provide from either titanium or zirconium) is attached to an implanted fixture.

A small screw made from titanium is inserted into the jawbone – the dental implant. Titanium is commonly used as it is lightweight, strong and biocompatible with the human body.

Dental Implants Can be Used For Any Amount Of Missing Teeth

Dental implants can be used to replace any amount of teeth - from a single missing tooth to full mouth restoration - and our expert dental team will tailor treatment plans to suit your personal requirements. Some examples of some of the common types of cases we treat are shown below.

 

What is a dental implant: single dental implant

Single Dental Implant

 

For one missing or damaged tooth. A single dental implant is inserted into the jawbone and one tooth crown is fastened to the implant to restore one missing tooth.

 

 

What is a dental implant: implant supported bridge

Implant Supported Bridge

 

For multiple teeth missing side by side. An implant supported bridge is used when there are numerous teeth missing together. For example, if there are 3 missing teeth, 2 dental implants can be placed in the jawbone and a bridge can be produced consisting of 3 crowns and secured to the implants.
