Q: What are Dental Implants?
A: Dental Implant serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Made from titanium alloy to exact specifications, your dentist will place the implant into your jawbone, it integrates with the bone and becomes a secure anchor for a replacement crown, a fixed bridge, a removable partial denture, or a complete denture.
Q: How long do dental implants last?
A: With regular brushing and flossing, the implant screw itself can last a lifetime, assuming the patient receives regular dental check-ups every 6 months. The crown, however, usually only lasts about 10 to 15 years before it may need a replacement due to wear and tear. With the recovery time being 1 to 2 weeks. Each Produce takes 3 to 4 months from start to finish

After 3-4 days, you should be able to return to a normal diet, but avoid biting on hard items in the area of the implant until it is fully healed.

Q: Why should I choose Dental Implants over Traditional Dentures?
