Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are used to replace missing teeth. Implants have proven to be functionally effective and durable substitutes for teeth lost due to:
Root canal failure
Periodontal disease(gum disease)
Trauma to the teeth and supporting structures
Dental implants placed at The Dental Clinic are virtually indistinguishable from the natural teeth. Their natural aesthetics are further facilitated by structural and functional connections between the implant and the living bone.
Dental implants, though typically placed in a single sitting procedure, require a period of osseo-integration – a process through which the root of the dental implant anchors with the jaw bone. Osseo-integration and healing process takes place anywhere from three to six months depending on the patient’s compliance and habits.
