Another way to attach a bridge is to install implants on either side of the gap and cover these with crowns. No area in dentistry has made more rapid advancements than dental implants. Implantation dentistry has come a long way since it was first introduced, and has a high success rate if placed by an experienced professional.

Dental implants are small prosthetic posts attached to titanium screws that have been surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw. Their purpose is to take the place of the roots of natural teeth that have been lost or removed. They protrude slightly above the gum line, so that crowns or dentures may be snapped.

The advantage of using titanium as the material for implants is that it is strong, non-toxic, and biologically compatible with the tissues of the mouth.

Implants have the strength, look, and feel of natural teeth making them the ideal option to replace missing teeth. Appearance, speaking, and eating are all as good as they would be with the original teeth.


If the bone tissue has been greatly reduced over time (as sometimes happens when teeth are missing for years), bone grafting may be needed in advance of the implant procedure, to ensure support for the implants. Repair of soft tissues may also be necessary at the same time.

A bone graft may also be needed when teeth are extracted before implant surgery to preserve the remaining bone with a future implant restoration in mind.

Implants are not for everybody.
