A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement and is used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. They are the modern way to replace a missing tooth.

- Dental Implants look and feel like your own teeth.

- As the neighbouring teeth are not altered as in bridge-work, implants are in fact tooth saving. This is a significant benefit to long term oral health.

- Unlike dentures, there is no need to worry about them being misplaced or having to use glues.

- The success rate for implants is highly predictable.

The most widely accepted and successful implant today is the osseointegrated implant, based on the discovery by Swedish Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark that titanium can be successfully fused into bone. This forms a structural and functional connection between the living bone and the implant.

Peter Yesudian works with one of the largest implant brands in the world. Straumann has a history of 40 years in the implant field.

The above image shows that an implant is a replacement for the root. Titanium integrates with bone, a process that takes about 6-8 weeks. The implant is hollow with an internal thread. After the healing period is over, the crown is screwed into the implant. The finished implant and crown can be used immediately just like a natural tooth.
