More About Dental Implants


A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is anchored in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place. Implants are made from titanium alloys and bone-like ceramic materials that are biocompatible with body tissue. They act as an anchor to provide a solid base for artificial tooth replacement. Below are some of the benefits of dental implants:

Restore your smile and confidence

Reduce Pain

Stabilize teeth to prevent further tooth loss

Enjoy your favorite foods again

Made from durable materials such as titanium, these artificial roots act as stable support for the crown, bridge or denture that is attached to it. Depending on the type of dental implant and the complexity of the procedure, they can be inserted into the upper or lower jawbone and/or gums using local anesthetic only with typical outpatient procedures.

Dental implants are the closest alternative to real, healthy teeth one can seek. They look natural, feel secure and stable and are permanently placed in the gum.

Common Questions


What is the difference between dental implants and crowns?

Dental implants are small posts that act as the root of a tooth for a crown to be placed over. They are often used in situations where there is serious tooth damage or a missing tooth where only using a crown is unfeasible.

What happens after my implants are completed?

You may experience some discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Once your dental implants are in place you can care for them just as you do your natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings.
