A dental implant is an artificial root that works like a natural one. When a tooth and its root are missing, the long-term solution for a natural function is a dental implant and made-to-match crown.
All our dental implants are produced from titanium. Titanium is a biocompatible metal, non-toxic and well-tolerated by the body. It is the perfect material for implants because of its high strength and low weight. Implants made from titanium have been shown to bond very well to living bone and can last for decades.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
- Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth
- Improved comfort
- Easier eating
- Dental implants look and behave like a natural tooth
- Dental implants support your facial structure, whereas missing teeth produce a sunken ageing appearance around the mouth that goes on to impact the structure of the whole face.
At APEX DENTAL SMILE STUDIO, we use a high definition 3D X-ray system, which allows your dentist to see the thickness and bone quantity more clearly. This is a crucial tool in the diagnostic stage before treatment even begins.
Imaging in this phase determines the quantity, quality, and angulation of bone; relationship of critical structures to prospective implant sites; and the presence or absence of disease at the proposed surgical sites.
Dental implants are an excellent solution to missing teeth, restoring both the look and function of your smile but as with any dental procedure, the skill and training of your dentist plays a huge role in the success of your procedure.
