Dental implants: What you need to know

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a titanium rod that functions as your replacement tooth root.

When placed in your jaw, a dental implant forms a strong attachment with the bone and acts as a support for the replacement tooth. Dental implants are excellent substitutes for teeth, because they look, feel and work just like your natural set.

They also prevent the loss of supporting bone that can occur after tooth extraction. Which, in turn, prevents your face from changing shape post-procedure. With a success rate of over 95%, dental implants are a highly effective option for replacing teeth.

Why should you
replace missing teeth?

Missing teeth can have a considerable impact on your life.

They may lead to loss of self-esteem, a change in your personality, and a hesitance to showcase your smile.
But beyond that, teeth loss can lead to significant changes to bone structure and facial appearance.

When not addressed, your missing teeth may cause other dental health issues in the long term, such as:
• Loss of chewing function
• Movement of teeth next to the gap
• Acceleration of loss of other teeth
