Dental Implant

Dental implants are little cylinders that are surgically positioned into the jawbone to mimic the support and functions of a natural tooth. It is an artificial substitute that replaces the root of the missing tooth, and acts as a stable support for new teeth. Often times, these implants appear so natural, you may not even notice or feel it there!

How Does Dental Implant Works

Realistic View of a Dental Implant

Implants are made from titanium, which is known for its biocompatible properties. It fuses well to your jaw bone, allowing it to provide support for artificial teeth. After being placed inside the jaw bone via a small surgical procedure, the implant is firmly anchored into its surrounding bone tissues over the next few weeks or months (osseointegration), before having a dental crown positioned on the implant.

Why dental implants instead of other teeth replacement methods

Convenience

Dental implant is a permanent fixture that does not need to be removed at night, making it convenient and natural like your own teeth.

No Additional Support Required

Unlike dentures which need denture adhesive to hold it in place especially during speaking or chewing, dental implant holds firmly to your jawbone just like natural teeth.

More Lasting

Dental implants can last for a very long time with proper and regular dental hygiene put into practice. Regular check-ups with us are also crucial steps to take when caring for your implant.
