What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Advantages of Dental Implants Over Dentures or a Bridge
Every way you look at it, dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth.
· Esthetic Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth. Tooth-saving Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does
because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health! Confidence Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence!
They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
· Reliable The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.

What are Mini Implants?
OsteoCare™ Mini Implants are titanium screws, which firmly attach to the jawbone, replacing the natural roots of missing teeth. They can be used to stabilise loose dentures as well.
As replacing teeth and reforming the contour of the face, dental implants are about giving back confidence, dignity and self-esteem.
Mini/Midi Implant Aftercare
Just like natural teeth, implants will require very thorough cleaning for the best long-term results. Integrated implants do not suffer from the same disease process as normal teeth and seem to be more tolerant to neglect. Generally a normal toothbrush is all that is needed, although other brushes may need to be adopted for awkward areas.
