What is so good about dental implants?

In a very short space of time, dental implants have moved from experimental, university only offered treatments, to adoption within many general dental practices. We are very pleased that this technology has become predictable over the years. We are able to offer our patients dental implant therapy.

A dental implants is a device where the entire tooth is replaced with something artificial. The root of the tooth is replaced with a titanium implant screwed into the jaw. An artificial crown is then attached to the implant fixture.

Unfortunately, not all spaces can be treated with implants. A thorough assessment of the dimensions of the gap, quality and quantity of bone can make implant treatment more complex and costly. If implants are not well cared for, then they can also develop a condition call peri-implantitis and they may fail. Patients with a heavy bite have been known to fracture the implant hardware. We strongly recommend a thorough assessment and detailed conversation with our dentists should you desire this treatment modality.
