Dental Implants


Replace your missing teeth

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. They are typically made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that integrates well with the surrounding bone tissue.

The process of getting a dental implant involves several steps. First, the dentist will evaluate the patient's oral health and determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. If so, the implant will be surgically placed into the jawbone, where it will fuse with the bone over a period of several months.

Once the implant has fully fused with the bone, a custom-made replacement tooth or bridge can be attached to the implant. The replacement tooth or bridge is designed to match the color and shape of the surrounding teeth, making it a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.

The benefits

Dental implants offer several advantages over traditional tooth replacement options such as dentures and bridges.


They are more durable and long-lasting, provide better stability and support for the replacement teeth, and do not require any special maintenance or cleaning procedures. However, dental implants can be more expensive and require a longer treatment time than other options.


Frequently asked questions

  • What is preventative dentistry?
    Preventative dentistry refers to the practices and procedures aimed at preventing dental problems before they occur or worsen. The goal of preventative dentistry is to maintain good oral health, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and avoid the need for more invasive and costly dental treatments. Examples of preventative dentistry include regular dental checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and oral hygiene education. Through these practices, preventative dentistry helps to promote healthy teeth and gums and reduce the risk of dental problems in the future. Preventative dentistry is important for people of all ages, and it is especially crucial for children as they develop their permanent teeth. By establishing good oral hygiene habits early on and receiving regular preventative dental care, children can avoid many common dental problems and maintain good oral health throughout their lives.
  • Why is it important to visit a general dentist regularly?
    Regular visits to a general dentist are important for maintaining good oral health. General dentists can detect early signs of dental problems, such as cavities and gum disease, before they become more serious and require more invasive treatments. They can also provide preventive services such as dental cleanings and fluoride treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • How often should I visit a general dentist?
    Most general dentists recommend that you visit them for a dental health review at least annually. However, the frequency of your visits may depend on your individual dental health needs. If you have a history of dental problems, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
  • How can I find a good general dentist?
    You can find a good general dentist by asking for recommendations from family and friends, checking online reviews, and researching dentists in your area. It's important to choose a dentist who makes you feel comfortable and who takes the time to explain your dental health needs and treatment options.
