Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are utilised to restore the lost function and aesthetics of natural teeth. Dental implants are usually made from titanium and is surgically placed in the jaw. The implant then serves as a foundation to attach and replace your missing tooth. Dental crown is then customised and attached to the implant to restore lost function and hence enables to regain your lost smile.
Implants are used to replace one or more teeth and also assist to attach and secure dentures in their desired position.
After the initial consultation, scans and x-rays are taken to plan the placement and positioning of the implant. At the first stage the implant is first placed in the jaw and then we wait for few months for the jaw bone to grow and integrate around the implant. Once it is seen as being stable, a customised crown is attached to the implant.
