A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. It generally takes several months following the procedure for the implant to integrate with the surrounding bone through a processed called osseointegration. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Natural Looking Teeth
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.
