Dental implants explained
Dr. Titania Tong describes dental implants as tooth root replacements. These restorations are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. A more biocompatible material of zirconium are now used for implantation and are placed during oral surgery by specialists oral surgeons into the bone of the jaw. Once placed, it stimulates the production of bone growth that occurs naturally through Osseo integration. This keeps the implant firmly in place and gives a restoration a strong foundation.
How are dental implants restored?
Dental implants are often restored in one of three ways:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
The type of restoration will vary based on specific needs. Patients replacing a single tooth will use a dental crown, while patients replacing several teeth may require a bridge or denture. These are all made to attach to the dental implant for superior functionality.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?
