The loss of a tooth can be a source of concern, especially if the tooth is in the esthetic area! As clinicians we like to offer acceptable solutions to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is indicated when neighbouring teeth are healthy, and we are loath to cut them down for a bridge, for example.
Single or multiple teeth can be replaced predictably due to significant progress in research of dental implant materials. Implants are manufactured from titanium and designs and surfaces vary greatly.
Modern dental implants make use of osseointegration, the biologic process where bone fuses tightly to the surface of specific materials such as titanium. The integration of implant and bone can support physical loads for decades without failure.

Implants can last a lifetime!
Dental implants are one of the most effective ways of replacing missing teeth; they are the best and closest to our natural teeth. If you prefer a more reliable and prolonged-term alternative to bridges or dentures, then discussing your suitability for dental implants may be helpful for you.
In addition to restoring your teeth and providing you with a healthy, natural-looking smile, dental implants also have several health benefits:
- Dental Implants prevent bone loss
- Dental Implants keep adjacent teeth stable
- Dental Implants can help keep you free of gum disease
- Dental Implants can prevent facial sagging and premature aging
