Cosmetic dental implant

Reset Decrease Increase
Have you lost your teeth due to:

- Severe tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Trauma
- Failed root canal

If so, you may qualify for implant treatment. Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth. Implants are made of titanium or similar materials that are well suited for the human body. They are artificial replacements for teeth roots that support a restoration or a dental appliance.

Besides its cosmetic advantage, replacing the missing teeth will restore your ability to properly chew and speak.
In addition, the space caused by the missing teeth may allow the surrounding teeth to shift into that space.

This shifting could cause a misalignment in your bite that could result in problems with your jaw joint. These shifted teeth are harder to clean, making them more susceptible to gum disease, decay or even additional tooth lost.

It’s important that you notify your dentist of your medical condition such whether you have any artificial joints, diabetes or a history of heart and valve conditions. You should also inform your dentist you are currently or have previously taken.
It normally takes a few phases and a few months for your dentist to complete the treatment.

In the first phase, your dentist will place the implants in your jawbone. It requires a few months for the bone to fuse with the implant.
In the second phase, the dentist will place an extension or a post to extend the implants above the gum line.
