Dental implants are a highly specialized, effective way to change your smile for the better. This minor procedure, typically only requiring local anesthesia in specialized cases, is one of the most effective tooth-replacement options that can provide healthy, natural looking teeth and long-lasting results. Dental Implants allow you to live the way you want to - confidently eating, smiling, talking, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without having to worry about your missing teeth. In addition, Dental Implants help to preserve tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost - one of the major hidden consequence of losing teeth.
Dental Implants often take the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post, and are used to replace the root-part of a missing tooth. It requires a minor and routine procedure, followed by a short healing period before the final step can be commenced. In this final step, the implant is topped with a lifelike crown, custom-made to match your existing natural teeth. This procedure can be used to help replace one tooth, multiple teeth, all teeth permanently, or create supportive removable dentures.
There are two main type of dental implants and each type come in many different shapes and sizes. They are, Endosteal implants and Subperiosteal implants. Once checked with one of our highly trained implant experts, our team will determine what type of implant is best for you!
Endosteal: These are more commonly used when in need of a dental implant and are placed within the jawbone. They typically consist of small titanium screw like posts.
Subperiosteal: These types of implants are less common and can be placed anywhere under the gum. They typically lay between the gum and the jawbone, but in some cases, they might be placed directly on the jawbone as well. This is typically a more complex process but is a better option for those who do not have a healthy jawbone.
This simple technique has a documented success rate of around 95% which makes it the most successful tooth-replacement procedure out there.

To prevent your dental implants from losing attachment to the bone and failing once it has successfully fused, there are two main rules you must follow to guarantee their safety and care.
Brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis. Poor oral hygiene and/or a lack of regular cleanings can lead to a destructive bacterial infection called peri-implantitis.
If you face issues with clenching or grinding your teeth, ask your dental care provider for a night guard to protect your implants. Excessive grinding or clenching of teeth, can cause damage not only to your implants but your surrounding teeth as well, sometimes resulting in the fracturing or loss of additional teeth.
