A dental implant is an artificially made tooth that can be made to feel and perform like a real tooth in the underlying alveolar bone.

Dental implants consist of three components:

  • Crown – a replacement tooth custom-made to match adjacent teeth
  • Abutment – a device that supports and connects the crown to implant fixture
  • Fixture – the titanium device embedded in the jaw bone which replaces the original root of the tooth

Key benefits of using implants:

  • Improve your appearance
  • Improved comfort and speech
  • Improvement of self-esteem
  • Eat what you want
  • Smile with confidence
  • Maintain healthy adjacent teeth
  • Long term results
  • Preservation of jaw bone
