Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements arose from the need to secure loose-fitting dentures. Since the advent of the implant, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant’s usefulness, including the replacement of missing or lost teeth.

The modern dental implant is a predictable and ideal treatment option because it restores the missing dentition to maximum aesthetics and function. Implants can be placed to restore a single missing tooth or to support and stabilize a full arch removable or fixed denture.
Placement of dental implants is a complex process.
Detailed planning and evaluation of the available bone and surrounding anatomy is essential for implant success. It is recommended that 3D surveys be taken prior to implant placement to determine if bone augmentation or soft tissue grafting would be required for treatment success.
Depending on individual anatomy and circumstances, different number and sizes of implants will vary for each treatment plan.
