  • dental implant is a screw-like anchor that is placed into the jawbone in order to replace a missing tooth. Implants are made with special materials that are compatible with the human body. There are various forms of implants available for different cases.

    Dental Implant treatments are generally broken down in three stages.

    1) The dentist begins by placing the implant into the jaw followed by a screw that prevents debris from entering.

    2) Once returning to your next appointment, the implant is uncovered and an extension called an abutment is placed. This feature functions as a connector between the tooth and the implant.

    3) Lastly, a crown/bridge is designed to best suit your natural teeth considering factors such as colour, shape and size. Once completed, it is then attached to the implant post.
