What Are Dental Implants?

For some, partial bridges or dentures are not the most suitable or comfortable solution in terms of replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are an effective long-term solution for those suffering with missing teeth. They are a more modern replacement solution compared to bridges or dentures. Dental implants are metal or Zirconia (ceramic) implants that are surgically inserted into the jaw bone beneath the gum surface to replace any missing teeth. Once the implant(s) is inserted and healed, an artificial replacement tooth is mounted onto them. They are designed to, eventually with time, fully integrate with the jaw bone. This provides long-term, stable support for the new artificial tooth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

A dental implantation starts with a screw-shaped or cylindrical root-form titanium or zirconia implant that acts as an artificial tooth root. The implant is carefully placed in the jawbone and is given time to heal. During the healing phase, your bone is growing in order to lock the implant in place. Since the implant is infused into the jawbone, it provides stable support for the artificial replacement tooth.

An abutment post is then inserted into the anchor and a carefully crafted crown made out of ceramic or Zirconia is made to fit on top of the implant. The crown functions as your “new” tooth in as little as 6 weeks!
