What Are Dental Implants
A dental implant facilitates replacing a missing tooth while giving you a natural look. The implant itself is a small titanium screw that acts as a replacement for the root portion of a missing tooth. Once the implant is placed a crown is placed on top of it to complete the procedure.
Implants can be placed on both the upper and lower jaws and, due to its unique biocompatible properties of the titanium, it fuses with the bone making an excellent anchor for the replacement tooth.
It is possible to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, and even a full arch using this procedure.

What to expect - The Dental Implant Process
Getting dental implants is as easy as 123…
- The first step is for Dr. Morgan to make an incision into the gums and prepare a site in the bone. The implant is then screwed into the jawbone where it is left to integrate with the bone. This osseointegration takes on average three months. After this time the bone will have fully fuse with the implant.
- Once the implant has fused to the bone, an impression is taken of the implant and the surrounding teeth. This is then sent to the laboratory to fabricate the crown.
- On your next visit your permanent, custom-made, dental restoration / crown will be attached to the implant by Dr. Morgan.
There are three types of dental implant depending on how many teeth need replacing:
- Single Tooth Replacement
- Multiple Teeth Replacement
- Full Arch Replacement
Why choose dental implants?
There are many reasons you should consider dental implants, but the main one is that when a tooth is removed the jawbone often shrinks, giving the face an older appearance. Replacing the tooth with a dental implant will prevent this from happening.
Many people choose dental implants over a bridge to replace a missing tooth as unlike the bridge procedure no other healthy teeth are modified.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. They will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
That means you can eat and drink whatever you choose, without having to worry. And will never have to feel embarrassed again about smiling and revealing your missing teeth to the world.
You will be amazed at the new confidence you will fee having a beautiful natural-looking smile.
Dental implants really can be life-changing.
