A dental implant is an artificial piece, shaped like a small screw, designed to act as a tooth root. They are permanently fixed into de jawbone, so they can provide support to different types of dental restorations (crowns, bridges, or special dentures), which replace missing teeth.
Dental implants integrate into your jawbone, meaning that gum tissue grows up around the replacement tooth, just like it would happen with your natural teeth.

Dental implants have many benefits and provide excellent long-term value:
Types of Dental Implants

Regardless of the type of implant you choose, the result will be the same: strong, functional, and beautiful teeth that look and feel natural!
Am I a good candidate for Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is a patient with a missing tooth who has good general and oral health, with healthy gum tissues and free of periodontal disease. Adequate bone volume in your jaw is needed to support a dental implant.
What happens if I am not a good candidate?
Patients who have suffered significant bone volume loss, either because of disease, trauma, or the long-term absence of the natural teeth, may need an adequate restoration through bone grafting before being able to get dental implant work done.
How long do Dental Implants take to heal?
Dental implants can take three to several months to integrate into place. The bone around a new implant needs time to heal so it can secure the implant into place. Jaw augmentation procedures (or bone grafting) require additional healing time, too, meaning the whole process could take several months to be completed.
