Rockcliff Oral Surgery - Dental Implants

Lost confidence in your smile?

We can help! Dental implants are a long-term solution to replace missing teeth. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants are a well-established treatment that has been scientifically tested and used for the past 50 years. Missing teeth can cause more problems than lack of confidence…once a tooth loses its root the bone begins losing density. However, when a dental implant is installed, the bone views it as a root and bone growth is stimulated.

A dental implant can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire mouth of teeth. The specialists at Rockcliff Oral Surgery can help you on your journey to better health and confidence.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. Dental implants have three parts:

Implant: An implant is a titanium post or screw that is placed into the jaw bone. Bone will grow onto the surface of the implant to hold it firmly in place. Once stable, the implant can then be used as an anchor to attach a crown.

Abutment: An abutment is a connector that attaches the dental implant to the crown

Crown: A crown is an artificial tooth made to match your natural teeth. It is typically made of porcelain or zirconia.
