What Are Dental Implants?
A Safe & Effective Way to Restore Your Smile
Dental implants are designed to artificially replace a tooth root using a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jaw. There is no need to be concerned, as we will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed during this procedure to insert single or multiple dental implants as required.
Once surgery is completed, the implants must be given time to bond or fuse with the surrounding bone, a process called osseointegration. During this time, new bone cells grow on and around the specially treated implant post, fusing it firmly in place until it becomes strong, stable, and able to support a new restoration. We know many patients are concerned they will be left without teeth during treatment, but we can place a temporary restoration so you will still be able to eat, talk and smile.
As soon as your implants have fully integrated with the jawbone, Dr. Mounir Iskandar will attach an abutment to the implant post. This protrudes above the gum line and supports the crown, bridge, or denture.
The final step is to make your new restoration, which is carefully designed to restore appearance and function. Once in place, your new restoration should feel instantly comfortable and natural.
