Dental Implants

Dental implants are prosthetic replacements for missing teeth. They are best described as a natural tooth root substitute. If the bone in the jaw is weak, a bone graft is often used to make the bone firm enough to hold an implant. A patient normally needs to wait six months or less depending on the quality of the bone for complete osseointegration of the jaw.

Dental implants can hold a single crown, a permanent bridge, or full reach (all in 4). Dental implants can also be used to hold over-dentures (see examples). The longevity and success of dental implants are directly related to good oral hygiene and checkups. All dental implant treatment should schedule yearly checkups.
