Dental implant is a combination of an artificial root and crown that is inserted into the jaw bone. Implants closely mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth. At Smiles @ Bronberg we offer this modern and attractive alternative to dentures and bridges.
In cases of multiple missing teeth, implants can be used to secure, hold and minimize the movement of an entire set of dentures.
Placement of an implant following extraction, prevents bone loss of the jaw, hence prevents the formation of hollowed out or collapsed cheeks and lips which commonly occurs following the loss of natural teeth.
Unlike bridges, implants do not require any cutting or shaping of healthy neighboring teeth.
Implants are secured and do not need to be removed at night like dentures, making them more comfortable than denturesThe maintenance of implants, is easy as they do not require any separate or special cleaning products or procedures, and like natural teeth can be cleaned by brushing and flossing.
The placement of the actual implant is generally done under local anesthetic and at an average the procedure takes about 30 minutes.
