Dental Implants are made of the purest Titanium and are used to replace missing teeth.
We mainly use Straumann implants which are considered one of the very best types available. They are manufactured in an oxygen-free environment and are specially treated so that they integrate to the bone faster and more predictably. For the narrow spaces with limited width of bone, we are now using the very latest implants which are made from Zirconium which are even stronger.
The fixtures, which are equivalent to your tooth roots, are placed in the jaw bone and left for two to six months. In this time the body's natural bone will bond and fuse onto the titanium/zirconium threaded screw.
This is called osseointegration and enables a cap or crown to be constructed on top of the fixture to look like a perfect natural tooth. Bridges and Dentures can be made for the larger gaps.
Implants were developed in Sweden by Professor Branemark. Millions of implants have successfully been placed world-wide over the last forty years. The quality and back up of the research and studies ensures that we have total confidence in using dental implants.
There is no need to have any dentures at all with this revolution in dentistry. Quality of life, comfort, stability and eating are all restored to normal function. These benefits will increase your confidence and bring back that natural smile.
