Dental Implants

What is an implant?

A dental implant is made of titanium. It is a screw that is inserted into the jaw-bone to act like the root of a tooth or use as an anchor for a full set of teeth.

The implant has threads on the outside to attach to the bone through a process called osseointegration. It also has threads on the inside to receive a component called an abutment.

How does it work?

Precision Computer-Guided Surgery

A dental implant placed in our practice is thoughtfully and intentionally planned ahead of time on a computer.

Implants placed using a surgical guide rather than free-hand is more precise. This leads to better clinical outcomes and faster healing.

Super Hydrophilic UV Activation

Dental Implants placed in our practice are treated with UV
light in the moments before insertion.

This technology removes impurities from the titanium surface and makes the surface super hydrophilic. This means faster integration into the bone.
