What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a technologically advanced way to restore missing teeth, using a small metal post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Once situated in the jawbone, the post gradually Osseo-integrates or ‘bonds’ with the surrounding bone. This is a process that takes 3-6 months, by which time the post will be firmly fused with the bone. At this stage, the post is strong enough to support a new implant crown. Multiple implants will support bridges and even complete arches of teeth, comfortably restoring your ability to eat, talk and smile.
What are Dental Implants Made Of?
Dental implant posts are made from medical-grade titanium alloy. This is highly biocompatible with the body. We use MIS implants for increased Osseo-integration and which have a success rate of more than 97%. Implant-supported restorations are made from the highest quality dental materials, including metal alloys and advanced ceramics.
