What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are biocompatible titanium replacements of the tooth’s roots. Dental implants replace missing teeth by mimicking nature as closely as possible.

A dental implant restoration has 3 parts:

  • Titanium, bone-integrated implant
  • Implant abutment (connection between implant and crown)
  • Crown

 

At Radiance Dental, Dr Chou will work closely with the periodontist (gum specialist) who places the titanium implant, and then we will place the final crown for your missing tooth, once the implant has “osseointegrated” (bone-integration) with the site of the missing tooth.

Disclaimer: Dental implants are a surgical procedure, and not everyone with missing teeth are suitable for dental implants. Please ensure that you consult with our dentists, specialists and other qualified practitioners for a second opinion to find out if dental implants are suitable for you.
