Service Description

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth (bridge) or they can be used to support a denture. The jaw bone then osseointergrates (fusion of the implant surface with the surrounding bone) with the artificial root. However, due to the lack of a periodontal ligament, dental implants can feel slightly different when compared to natural teeth during chewing. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Although dental implants are high-tech in nature, they are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support. Dental implants are designed to allow for a natural-look and feel; providing you with confidence about your teeth, both personally and professionally. Under proper conditions, such as placement by a periodontist and diligent patient compliance and regular maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. ~Megagen ~Straumann ~Mis (Implant Support Services) ~Southern implants
