What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are the most advanced option for patients looking to replace a missing tooth or teeth. An implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as an artificial tooth root.
Dental implants are a well-established restorative treatment made of titanium and other biocompatible materials that are long-lasting, comfortable and secure. Implant dentistry provides a secure and natural looking long-term replacement for the entire missing tooth.
Why you should get a dental implant?
Missing teeth can result in low self-esteem and a lack of function as you may not be able to bite and chew as you used to or feel you want to hide your smile.
By leaving gaps in your smile, it also impacts your speech, chewing and biting abilities; and can actually cause other teeth to shift overtime if you do not fill the gap.
Benefits of dental implants
Dental implants are fabulous and have endless benefits over other forms of tooth replacements.
- Permanent solution
- Durable and strong
- Looks natural
- Improves functionality of bite
- Easy to manage and convenient

Who can get dental implants?
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to get dental implants. Reasons why a patient may not be able to get a dental implant include:
- Poor bone growth
- Poor jaw bone density
- Suffer from gum disease
- You smoke
- Other medical conditions which will impact your dental implant
These are only some of the common reasons to why a dental implant may not be for you.
We have the solution for you
Whether you seek to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, the Crown Dental Group team are here to help you with a solution that looks and feels like a normal tooth.
An implant restoration takes place in separate stages. We’ll first need to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. If so, the implant device will be inserted into your jaw bone. If possible, you’ll receive a temporary restoration until your permanent solution can be placed. During the next stage, a crown, bridge or denture is attached onto the implant. Our experts are happy to discuss which implant replacement best suits your needs.
