Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. They are used to replace a single missing tooth, mulitple missing teeth, support a denture, or restore the entire mouth. Dental Implants are made of titanium. Titanium is very strong and biologically inert. Unlike many other metals, titanium does not reject by the body. Therefore, they are perfectly safe for individuals.

 

To be considered a good candidate for dental implants, an individual must have:

  1. Healthy Gums
  2. Enough bone level present

 

However, depending on the situations, if an individual does not have enough bone structure, periodontist may be able to use regeneration procedures to generate new bones prior to dental implant(s) insert.
