Dental implants are the most natural-looking replacements for missing teeth. The implant itself is a titanium screw which is used to support restorations. Placed within the bone, the implant acts as a root and becomes fully bound to the bone, a process known as ‘osteointegration’.
Implants may be used to attach crowns, bridges and dentures. Prior to receiving this treatment, the dentist will take a series of X-rays to determine the location of structures like sinuses and nerves, the quantity and quality of the bone, and the proximity to other teeth. Once all the information is gathered, a discussion of the procedure with the dentist will ensure you feel comfortable and confident.
