Dental implants are a form of tooth implant that simulates the look of real teeth. This is a form of tooth replacement that is an alternative to dental bridges and dentures. The implant will feel and look like a natural tooth. It is also one of the gentlest procedures that Dr. Kim Wagstaffe provides with minimal discomfort.
When we put in a dental implant, we first insert a rod into your jawbone. This simulates a natural root and brings all the benefits roots have. We use titanium for our dental implants. Dr. Kim Wagstaffe will then cap the rod off with a dental crown. These crowns are given a realistic colour and shaded to match the look of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are very aesthetic and are easy to take care of since they look and act like natural teeth. They will not shift or move and are stable within the bone. They also support healthy bones and help your jawbone keep its shape. The dental implant cost is higher than other tooth-replacement options, but it is worth the cost.
