Dental Implants

As Good As Having Back Your Tooth

Dental implants are man-made structures to replace missing teeth and an alternative to dentures and bridges. Dental implants are usually made from titanium and looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

How does implants work?

  • A component called the fixture in inserted into the bone for support
  • Osseo-integration which is bone fusion to the implant takes about 3 months for lower jaw and 6 months for upper jaw
  • An abutment is then locked onto the fixture to form the supra-structure
  • A crown is then built onto the abutment
