Dental implants are screw-like posts made out of titanium which are inserted under the gums to replace missing teeth. Once in the bone the implants are allowed to heal for approximately 4 to 6 months. After that, custom made porcelain crowns are made and fitted onto the implants.
When an implant is placed with a crown on top of it the adjacent teeth do not shift, the risk of gum disease and cavities does not increase and the bone does not resorb itself.
The cost of the dental implant with the crown is similar to the previous solution to a missing tooth - the Bridge. However with the implant option the adjacent teeth are not affected.
Implants can be used to replace one, several teeth or a whole arch provided there is adequate bone and space at the site.
