A Dental Implant is now a benchmark for replacing a single missing tooth. It is the most effective way of replacing single or multiple missing teeth. A titanium post is surgically positioned into the jaw bone and then a replacement tooth or teeth are placed on top.
Dental implants have a biological interaction with the jaw bone where it fuses to it, providing permanent stable support for the artificial teeth on top. Unlike dentures, implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth, which makes eating and speaking feel a lot more natural.
For some people, conventional bridge and dentures are simply not comfortable, or even possible. Unlike bridges, where teeth on either side of the gap are ground down to support the new replacement teeth, implants do not need adjacent teeth for support. It does not touch teeth on either side of the gap.
However, you will need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support an implant. This is why you need a consultation appointment with our dentist first, where we assess you and take records and have a scan done so we can treatment plan to the ideal for your implant placement.
Here at Sparkling Dental, we use the longest researched, most trusted implant brand NobelBiocare, which was originally formed in 1978 in partnership with Professor Branemark who discovered osseointegration (fusing of titanium to bone), and thus founded dental implants. We use all genuine NobelBiocare parts.
At Sparkling Dental, all practitioners and surgical nurses adhere to strict infection control and surgical protocols to provide the most optimal outcome for the patient, using digital surgical guides as required.
