Why do so many people prefer dental implants?
Dental implants are the most natural looking and natural feeling replacement for missing teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants don’t slip or click when you talk, laugh or eat. And they help keep your jawbone healthy, so that your facial structure stays intact.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a small post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the root of the tooth.

How long does it take to replace teeth using dental implants?
Each patient is different. After completing the necessary diagnostics, your implant dentist should provide you with a treatment plan including the estimated amount of time to complete the process. Total treatment time depends on your needs, medical and dental history, the health of the supporting bone in your jaw, and the technique and materials that will be used. It can be as short as a few months, or more than a year for more complex conditions.
Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants, which have been used for half a century, are safe and effective. As in any medical procedure, however, there can be complications. Choosing a knowledgeable, well-trained implant dentist will help minimize complications and ensure skillful handling of any problems, should they arise. It is important that you and your implant dentist review your health history and any habits which could affect the success of your recommended care, such as smoking, so that you are fully informed about the benefits and risks involved.

GuidedSMILE Surgical Implant Guides

An implant surgical guide is a chrome overlay that resembles a plastic mouthguard. It has holes in it that mark exactly where the implants are supposed to go. The holes control the depth and the angle of the drill that is used to set the implants. The guide ensures accurate placement of every implant for every patient.
