What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are special titanium fixtures that are placed within the jawbone. A special post is then secured to the dental implant. The final restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge or cosmetic denture to restore the dental implant and give you your new teeth.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
- Strong, stable and very long lasting
- Help restore function, bite and chewing ability
- Dental implant retained dentures are the most retentive dentures
- Cosmetics and comfort

Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are placed within the jaw bone and left to heal for usually 3-6 months. The procedure is easy and painless. While the dental implant fixture is healing a transitional dental bridge or teeth denture is used to close the space. After satisfactory healing, a precision post is placed into the dental implant. Finally, depending on your individual case, a porcelain crown, dental bridge or cosmetic denture is placed onto the post. And you have your new teeth and can smile with confidence.
How long do Dental Implants last?
Dental implant treatment has more than 90% success rate over a 15-year period. They are very good if there is enough bone to place them into.
