What is an Implant?
Dental implants enable dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in innovative ways. Implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth and are an alternative to conventional bridges and dentures. They act and look like natural teeth and, because they maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss as well as the sunken facial appearance associated with missing teeth. A dental implant restoration consists of a bio-compatible titanium screw and post topped by a crown, bridge or denture.
Once the implant has been completely integrated with the bone, a post is attached to the implant. Dr Netsky then creates the permanent tooth replacement.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
