A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium. Titanium is a metal that the body accepts most easily. It mimics the function of a tooth root. The dental implant is inserted into the bone of the jaw. Over time the jawbone integrates with the implant surface, firmly anchoring it. Under normal conditions, the healing process can take as little as 6-12 weeks. After this time the tooth replacement in the form of a single crown, bridge, or denture is secured to the implant. With implant treatment, the dental implant replaces the lost tooth root and provides a stable foundation for the replacement tooth, thus eliminating the need to grind down healthy neighbouring teeth
At J-Bay Dental studio we place a range of implants suitable for your specific needs.
