Dental implants are a cutting-edge and durable solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of three main components: the implant itself, the abutment and the prosthetic (such as a crown, bridge or denture).


The implant is a small, screw-like post typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material. It is surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line, where it serves as a substitute for the root of a missing tooth. The placement of the implant in the jawbone is a crucial step, as it provides stability and support for the artificial tooth or teeth.


The abutment is a connector piece that is attached to the top of the implant once the bone has healed around it. It protrudes above the gum line and serves as a link between the implant and the prosthetic tooth. The abutment is necessary for securing the artificial tooth in place.

Prosthetic Tooth (Crown, Bridge or Denture):

The prosthetic tooth is the visible part of the dental implant that resembles a natural tooth. It can be a crown, a bridge or a denture, depending on your needs and the number of missing teeth. The prosthetic is custom designed to match the color, shape and size of the natural teeth for a seamless and natural appearance.

The Dental Implant Process

  • Consultation and Treatment Planning: During the initial consultation, we assess your oral health, takes X-rays and determine the suitability for dental implants. A personalized treatment plan is created based on your individual needs.
  • Implant Placement: The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. After the procedure, a healing period, known as osseointegration, allows the bone to fuse with the implant, providing a stable foundation.
  • Abutment Placement: Once the implant has integrated with the jawbone, a second minor surgery may be performed to attach the abutment to the implant. This step prepares the implant for the placement of the prosthetic tooth.
  • Prosthetic Attachment: The final step involves attaching the custom-made prosthetic tooth to the abutment. The prosthetic is carefully crafted to match the surrounding natural teeth in terms of color, shape and functionality.

Advantages of Dental Implants:

  • Natural Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing solution.
  • Stability and Functionality: Implants offer stability and functionality comparable to natural teeth, allowing for comfortable chewing and speaking.
  • Bone Preservation: Dental implants help preserve jawbone density by stimulating bone growth, preventing the bone loss that can occur after tooth loss.
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last for many years, even a lifetime.

While dental implants are a highly successful and effective solution for tooth replacement, not everyone is a suitable candidate. Factors such as overall health, jawbone density and oral hygiene habits are considered during the evaluation process. A consultation with our team of dental professionals is essential to determine individual candidacy for dental implant treatment.
