Dental Implants are made from titanium and mimic a tooth root. An implant can be placed into your jaw to support a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people who want a fixed long term solution for their missing teeth without having to involve adjacent teeth.
Dental Implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Implant Supported Restorations are teeth that look and feel just like your own!
What are Dental Implants?
If you consider a natural tooth – it is made up of the crown of the tooth, which is visible in the mouth, and the root of the tooth that supports the crown and is in the bone. A dental implant mimic the root of the tooth, it is made of titanium and it is placed to sit in the bone and support the crown which is mimicking the natural tooth crown. Dental Implant treatment is made up of 2 stages. Placing the dental implant into the bone and making the implant supported crown.

In actual fact a lot of cases are undertaken under local anesthetic in the dental chair because of the ease and simplicity of the treatment. So, here are some simple things that you as patients need to know to have a better idea of what dental implant treatment really is and how the whole process can be straightforward and stress-free.
The 3 Ps: Preparation, Planning and Patience
Dental implant treatment can be very easy and atraumatic if simply planned well. Often patients are eager to have the whole treatment finished as soon as possible, however remember that planning is key to achieving the end result you want and planning takes time and thought.
Your specialist will take different records which they will use to assess things like how much bone is available to place the implants, do you have enough space for the final tooth, will the dental implants be able to withstand the forces created when you bite and chew and what anatomical structures are in the area that have to be taken into consideration?
Through planning and preparation are crucial not only for stress-free treatment but also for a long-term restoration that functions well and looks great.
